There are specific requirements for the doctoral program in each field of study. The faculty group can specify how certain departmental requirements are to be met and can add requirements or increase minimum standards. Optional courses may be taken in addition to the required courses, not instead of them. Students must consult with their field advisor to ensure that their choices make a sensible program.Business and Public Policy Curriculum

When you join our program, you benefit not only from the BPP group, but also from a long list of courses and faculty across Haas and UC Berkeley, which is a place where excellent research thrives."
