The Haas at Work program matches alumni with small groups of MBA students interested in their field for a short onsite visit. These alums get the opportunity to educate students about their company and industry, get the company name out in the Haas community, meet potential summer interns or full-time employees, and keep up with the latest news from Haas. The students benefit from the chance to learn about different businesses and jobs for MBAs and gain valuable networking opportunities.
Nineteen alumni hosted students in 2003, the most ever in the programís history. MBA students visited Barra; BEA Systems; Cisco Systems; Smith and Hawken; Openwave Systems; Sun Microsystems; Gap, Inc.; McKesson Corporation; Siebel Systems; and Chiron Corporation, among others. Alumni from all backgrounds, industries, and job functions have had the chance to meet and share their experiences with students and at the same time stay connected with Haas.
Become part of a tradition of giving back to Haas through the Haas at Work program. The meetings generally take place on a Friday during lunch and give the host complete flexibility in determining how many students will visit and in creating an interesting forum for discussion. It does not require much time or much effort to make a significant contribution to the future of the Haas Alumni Network.
