Ronen Eckhouse, MBA 08
Representative, Israel (Yokneam)

I chose Haas because of its close proximity to high-tech and information technology businesses and because its strong heritage as a school that is strong in entrepreneurship and innovation. In addition, the small class size and close student relationship was a good fit. Finally, Berkeley was also the perfect place for my family with its outstanding weather and endless possibilities.

I greatly enjoyed my two years at Haas. Haas certainly had a pivotal part in my transformation from an engineer to a business oriented person. I am currently working as the Chief Executive Officer at Rapid Medical Ltd. in Israel.
