New Roles at Center for Executive Education

After nearly a decade leading the Berkeley-Haas Center for Executive Education (CEE), Whitney Hischier is transitioning from her role as assistant dean to faculty director.  

In her new position, Hischier will conduct business development, direct programs, and continue to help guide the center on a path for further growth. She also will retain her role as a coach for the Haas International Business Development program and co-teach an MBA course on entrepreneurship. 

During her tenure leading CEE, Hischier built a team that grew the school’s executive education business a whopping eight-fold over nine years. With revenues of $17 million, CEE has become a significant revenue and income center for the school. Whitney has helped CEE form relationships with clients in industries from energy to technology in countries around the world, from Norway to Mongolia.

"Whitney's done a remarkable job building CEE into a very powerful program for Berkeley-Haas," says Dean Rich Lyons. "I’m thrilled that she and her expertise remain part of the CEE team as a faculty director."

Abby Scott, CEE's director of custom programs and former executive director of the Haas MBA Career Management Group, will assume HIschier's role on an interim basis until a successor is found. Professor John Morgan is chairing the search committee for her successor.
