Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network


Part of our chapter’s charter is to ensure that we host a variety of events that match the interests of our alumni. Through these unique events HAAS LA hopes to increase the value and importance of building relationships with alumni, current students, faculty, and staff. Our belief is that an engaged and responsive alumni community can in turn contribute to the strong brand equity of The Haas School of Business and UC Berkeley.
