This Veterans Day, we thank our Berkeley Haas student veterans for their service and for all they they contribute to our campus community.
“We’re delighted to have one of our largest classes of veterans studying at Haas this year,” said Interim Dean Laura Tyson. “Those who volunteer to serve their country feel a calling to do something beyond themselves. It makes veterans a perfect fit for Berkeley Haas since they embody our Defining Leadership Principle ‘Beyond Yourself.’ We are grateful for the leadership skills and the global perspectives our veterans bring to the Haas community, and we thank them for their service.”
We asked four student veterans to share what “Beyond Yourself” means to them:
- Poga Ahn, EMBA 18, former U.S. Army captain
- Rodrigo Flores, EWMBA 21, former U.S. Navy submarine officer
- Cassidy Nolan, BS 19, former U.S. Marine Corps intelligence chief
- Katie Rentz, FTMBA 20, former U.S. Navy unmanned underwater vehicles department head
Here’s what they had to say:
