Searching for an undergraduate business program with excellent prospects for future employment? Look no further than University of California – Berkeley.

So what makes Haas School of Business so special? Perhaps it’s the stated mission to “develop leaders who redefine how we do business.” The curriculum provides students with a solid understanding of how business operates and its role in society. Students receive core training in accounting, finance, marketing, business communication, and organizational behavior. But they also fulfill “breadth” requirements that expose them to the arts and sciences. In true Cal form, they become critical thinkers—a highly prized trait in a continuously changing global economy.
To enrich their educational experience and increase marketability, Haas encourages undergrads to study abroad. On campus, many students participate in business-related extracurricular activities.
