Aspen Institute Ranks Haas #4
The Full-time Berkeley MBA Program jumped seven places from #11 in 2005 to #4 in the world in the 2007 Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey, published by the Aspen Institute on October 10. Among US schools, Haas ranked #3.
The Beyond Grey Pinstripes survey aimed to capture business schools' abilities to integrate social and environmental management into their teaching and research. The ranking equally weighs four areas of the business school experience.
Haas was also ranked #1 in course content explicitly addressing the role mainstream business in improving social and environmental conditions. The school placed #4 in providing students opportunities to take courses that teach about business' role in improving social and environmental conditions, and it placed #5 in faculty research exploring the same subjects.
The ranking is based on an extensive school questionnaire.
