Chilean Chapter Welcomes New Admits

The recently created Chilean Alumni Chapter welcomed new Berkeley full-time MBA admits (class of 2006) in June at a reception. This year’s Chilean group is the largest group – four – since the class of 2001. Alumni had a great time giving advice, remembering the good old times, and sampling plenty of quality Chilean wine. Among those pictured here from left to right are Marcos Kulka, MBA 01; Guido Goyeneche, MBA 01; Alfredo Finch, MBA 03; Giorgio Fronza, MBA 06; Mariano Valacco, MBA 06; Rodrigo Hetz, MBA 06; Gonzalo Miranda, MBA 99; David Decker, MBA 97; and other attendees. Mauricio Quiroga, MBA 00, was the camera man.

Digital Media Club and Interest Group Launched

The age of digital media distribution has arrived! Online music, networked gaming, mobile content, and blogging are quickly changing the landscape of the media and entertainment industries. To catch this tidal wave, a group of Haas students has recently formed the Berkeley Digital Media Club (DMC). The club is seeking to leverage UC Berkeley's strengths in entrepreneurship, technology, information management, and intellectual property by actively building relationships between digital media companies and Berkeley alumni, faculty, and graduate students in business, engineering, information management, and law.

The Berkeley DMC's first event was a trip to the Billboard Digital Entertainment Conference held at UCLA last November. The students who made the trip definitely left their mark, even outnumbering student attendees from UCLA. Students made important industry contacts with companies such as Yahoo!, Universal Music Group's eLabs, RealNetworks, and many others in the digital music and gaming markets.

The Berkeley DMC is currently forming a Special Interest Group (SIG) for Haas alumni working in industries related to digital media. If you are interested in joining the e-mail newsletter, networking database, or alumni board of advisers, go to http://www.haas.berkeley.edu/alumni/. DMC's web site will be up shortly with a lot more information on upcoming events and other ways to get involved. Go bears!
