The Haas School Business (“Berkeley Haas”) is one of the pre-eminent business schools in the world. The school employs ~ 80 FTE ladder faculty, 130 professional faculty and 230 FTE staff serving 2,200 students in six degree programs three of which are “self-supporting.” In addition, the school is home to a strong and growing Executive Education unit which serves both domestic and international executives. Berkeley Haas supports a multitude of research, teaching and public service institutes as well as two research laboratories, the Long Business Library, and an on-site cafe. Staff is organized across many functions including admissions, career services, computing, financial aid, student affairs, payroll, business services and facilities. The school provides business and financial leadership/expertise to the campus and is served by an international advisory board of business and industry leaders.
The school’s annual budget is in excess of $150 million and boasts an endowment of more than $300 million. The complexities of the school’s finances include non-state funded faculty FTE, self-funded degree programs (and corresponding independent fee approval and registration processes), over 300 funds of all types (central, student fees, recharge, gifts, endowments (held at both the Regents and Berkeley Foundation) contracts and grants), and multiple loan programs some of which are self-funded and insured. Further, the Berkeley Haas senior staff, Dean, faculty and advisory board demand robust year-end financial statements. In short, the school has the highest standards for financial management AND it has an incredibly complex professional school financial system given the unique activities of the school.
The MBA Career Management Group (CMG) serves the entire MBA student population (approximately 1400 students) and thousands of alumni.MBA CMG has 2 roles: 1) To prepare students for their job searches by offering workshops, advising and training programs and 2) To solicit and support employers for on-campus and off-campus recruiting of our students and to increase the quality and quantity of relationships recruiters have with Berkeley Haas.
The incumbent will lead, design, and drive the Career Management Group’s (CMG) transition to a knowledge management (KM) system using Atlassian’s Confluence Wiki and Jira system. This will require automating our processes (and transitions) with scripts and programs that will accelerate and facilitate the group’s transfer of knowledge from the old systems to our KM system. The applicant will also write web applications to collect and format data into a variety of dashboards to aide students and staff in the goal of pursuing meaningful work.
This will also require some customization work on the Wiki to integrate into CMG processes and tools. This applicant will also need a basic understanding of data collection and manipulation to integrate into the dashboards, providing basic statistics about our student’s success in an automated and programmatic way.
