School Spirit

Alumni celebrate their Haas connections

The class of 2012 showed its Cal spirit while posing for a one-year reunion photo during MBA Reunion Weekend in April. In addition to reconnecting with classmates, celebrating, and networking, alumni enjoyed an insightful one-day conference, which included a keynote by IDEO General Manager Tom Kelley, MBA 83, on design thinking. Thirteen alumni also delivered HAASx Talks, with titles including “Digging for Dollars in Your Underwear” and “Startup Marketing: Get Loud, Get Sued, Get Noticed.” Watch the HAASx Talks and faculty presenters at insights.haasalumni.org.
