Haas rated among top schools in new Positive Impact Rating

Berkeley Haas rates among the top schools globally in a new rating of business schools’ focus on creating positive social and environmental impact.

The Positive Impact Rating surveyed MBA and undergraduate students to explore schools’ effectiveness in energizing positive change through governance and culture, educating students through their programs and learning methods, and engaging the community through student engagement and serving as a role model.

Berkeley Haas is one of only three US schools and the only leading business school rated as playing a “transforming” role in creating positive impact.

Haas students gave their school high marks for governance and culture, pointing among other things to the importance of the Defining Leadership Principles.

The rating was developed by a large group of academics, students, and business school stakeholders from different countries. The full report was announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos on January 22, 2020.
