Alumni Reunion Conference

Conference Schedule


"Path-Bending Leadership for the New Economy"

Twenty-first century companies are in dire need of innovators. In many areas, from healthcare expenditure to energy and water consumption to public education, our economic status quo will lead to almost certain failure. We need path‐bending leaders to move us off these unsustainable paths.

 

Path-bending leadership is about putting new ideas to work effectively and responsibly in every corner of your organization. It is about energizing and inspiring those around you to achieve.  It's about proactively sensing and framing the challenges of your organization, and marshaling resources toward adaptation and innovation. 

 

To help you discover the key to this style of management, this year's Alumni Conference will bring together top Haas faculty and industry experts, some of them fellow alumni, to share essential insights on topics ranging from negotiations to brand relevance to managing career transitions.

 

Equally important, you will have the opportunity to network with classmates and the school's groundbreaking thinkers and visionaries who are defining what's next in our markets and societies. Join us for a memorable day back at Haas.

 

6:30pm-Midnight

Reunion Class Dinners

The venue is located on a 25-acre waterfront site that commands stunning views of the bay and city skyline. There will be separate class dinners, Cal themed cocktails, a live band and dancing.
