The UC Berkeley Graduate Council formally approved the Haas School's new Berkeley MBA for Executives graduate degree earlier this month.
The Graduate Council is a committee of the UC Berkeley Academic Senate, the university faculty's governing body. Approval from the Graduate Council is required for all new UC Berkeley graduate degrees.
The 19-month Berkeley MBA for Executives Program is specifically designed for senior-level working professionals.
Haas is recruiting for the new program, with information sessions scheduled in San Jose (Sept. 25), Los Angeles (Sept. 27), San Francisco (Oct. 3), and Seattle (Oct. 4). The first class will arrive at Haas for orientation on May 15, 2013.
