Notes and Criteria for Funding Reimbursements:
o If you need funds in advance: Requests must be submitted to the VP
Finance PRIOR to the event, using the MBAA
Reimbursement Request Form form.
o To get reimbursement: If you know you will be incurring a
reimbursable cost, please let the MBAA know prior to incurring the
expense. It is much easier for us to approve reimbursements when we
are made aware in advance. Each team must submit the MBAA Reimbursement Request Form and
supporting documentation to the VP Finance.
o Case Competitions: Please note that for case competitions,
you are required to have a faculty sponsor to get reimbursement. This
provides the MBAA with a de facto approval of your case competition, and
also helps administration track faculty activities. You are also required
to submit a 250 word summary of your experience at the event to the VP
Communications. This summary may be used by Haas in official
o Publicize the Event: All events must be posted on the official
full-time Haas calendar, which can be found at: http://events.haas.berkeley.edu/webevent.cgi?cmd=opencal&cal=cal8
Please see the VP Technology or VP Clubs if you have difficult posting the
not listed on the calendar are not eligible for reimbursement.
o Receipts: Receipts must be submitted in order to be
reimbursed. Please submit receipts for at least the amount of the
agreed-upon reimbursement to the VP Finance.
o Timeframe: In general, please allow one to
three weeks for reimbursement after the submission of receipts.
or Evening MBA Members Fees: On top of the individual club
fees, students from the Weekend or Evening MBA programs must pay $150 to
the MBAA. This is a one-time payment, good for the entire time these
students are enrolled in the progam. This fee provides them with an
associate membership in the MBAA which entitles them to the following
1. Eligibility for clubs. The MBAA uses some of the
membership dues it receives to support the 30+ student-run clubs organized
by the full time program. We provide base funding to each club each
semester, and then provide additional sponsorship funding for club events
such as conferences and firm nights. Each student who joins a club
benefits from the MBAA support. Individual club eligibility policies
and membership dues are set at the discretion of each club.
2. Access to social events. Each person who pays any form of
membership dues to the MBAA is welcome at all MBAA-sponsored social events,
including consumptions functions, bar-of-the-week promotions, holiday
parties, alumni events, etc.
limited MBAA membership does NOT entitle students to reimbursement from the
MBAA for any activities where full-time MBA students are eligible.
Partners: No MBAA
fee. (Clubs allowing partners may require a separate membership fee.)
