Curious. Inquisitive. Ever-evolving.
Yes, I'm describing YOU.
In fact, these adjectives describe all of us lucky enough to be part of the Haas community. We are passionate about learning and respect the power of ideas to inspire, engage, and inform. We are "students always." Naturally, your Alumni Relations Office is committed to assuring that, throughout your lifetime, you are intellectually challenged and renewed thanks to your affiliation with the Haas School of Business.
With your mind in mind, the Haas School recently launched two initiatives to support your lifelong learning. First, at the start of the new year, we unveiled a valuable new online resource called Haas Insights in partnership with the school's Center for Executive Education and Marketing and Communications Department. The website—insights.haasalumni.org—hosts an ever-expanding gallery of videos from Berkeley-Haas thought leaders, including Dean Rich Lyons, as well as path-bending business executives. Some videos run as short as 5 to 15 minutes and feature faculty members describing highlights of their current research. Other videos, of up to an hour, share the insights of innovative business leaders such as Biz Stone of Twitter and Mark Pincus of Zynga or business analysts such as Steven Pearlstein of the Washington Post.
Haas Insights expands on our longstanding tradition of providing alumni
access to lifelong learning: Since 2004, Berkeley-Haas has offered
all MBA alumni like you the opportunity to take MBA courses for free, as
availability allows, through our MBA Alumni Audit Program. Approximately
200 alumni take advantage of the program each academic year. In
addition, all Haas alumni enjoy a 15 percent discount on any executive
education course they attend. And, starting with the class of 2011,
alumni of the school's three Berkeley MBA programs—Full-time, Evening & Weekend, and Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA—will enjoy two free
days of executive education programs offered by the Haas School's
Center for Executive Education within the first five years after graduation.

We hope you will take advantage of our offerings as you remain a
With very best wishes from Berkeley,
Director, Alumni Relations
