Gift Boosts Finance Careers
The Haas School has awarded the first-ever Haas Investment Banking Fellowships to six second-year Full-time Berkeley MBA students.
These entirely new fellowships are awarded to students with demonstrated academic success and interest in investment banking. Six members of the class of 2008 will receive the first fellowships: Joshua Bleharski, Kevin Kopczynski, Aanand Krishnan, Mayuresh Oke, Jie Shen, and Kieran Valley. The six recipients were selected by a committee including representatives from admissions, career services, and student services.
The investment banking fellows receive a partial scholarship funded by the CJ White Fellowship Fund and a subsidy for school-organized treks, such as the winter break trips to Wall Street and Hong Kong. The students are also matched with alumni mentors working in investment banking. While these first awards were given to students in their second year, the goal is to award future fellowships to newly admitted students.
