"If you want to do business research at the highest level, you have to be in the US. If you want to be exposed to the best business researchers, you have to be at Berkeley. I had imagined that the professors, these important men and women, would have huge egos. The opposite is true. They are available and support our efforts to do our best work."

"This is such a diverse place. Everyone is appreciated for his or her accomplishments, without prejudice. Research can be very solitary — just you and your computer. Having a group of compatible colleagues to go out with and share ideas is a very big part of what makes the Haas experience valuable."
