New MBA Student Portal Debuts

The Haas School has unveiled the beta version of a new full-time MBA student portal just in time for classes. Work has begun on a similar portal for the Evening & Weekend MBA Program.

The portal, at, is a one-stop place online for students to access applications and frequently used Haas and Berkeley sites, helping reduce the need to navigate around the web for information. It includes links to bSpace, Study.Net, the student directory, event calendar, and outlook.

The user-focused portal also is customizable so students can create links to other frequently used tools, widgets, and blogs from all over the Internet.

The portal was created over the summer by the Haas School's Enterprise Computing and Service Management Department (a new unit that combines Haas Computing Services and Media Services) in collaboration with MBA Association leaders.

"We're so thrilled to have this," says Julia Min Hwang, director of the Full-Time MBA Program. "I want to thank Enterprise Computing and the students who worked on this project over the summer."

Enterprise Computing has just started working with Evening & Weekend MBA students on creating a portal for their program and is looking at rolling out portals for other Haas programs in the future.
