The Business Administration undergraduate program at UC Berkeley is a well-thought out program; while not very flexible, provides background for every area of business and prepares students for such areas successfully. In my opinion, this is one of the reasons why the program is so valuable. The core curriculum provides a way to discover the best path suitable for you in business, and the electives provide more focus within that particular path. Haas has one of the strongest undergraduate business programs in the country, and it is due to its amazing faculty, rigorous curriculum, and wide-reaching alumni network. I would like to highlight the curriculum specifically.
Back-up and prospective majors are imperative when it comes to Haas. Since nothing is finite, it’s always good to have other disciplines to pursue, especially if you have other interests. Here are some examples of choices for either a simultaneous degree or a Haas replacement that many people have pursued.
It’s not a surprise that the most important Haas pre-requisites are UGBA 10 and Econ 1, the business and economics introductory courses. I wouldn’t it call it a necessity that you need to do well in both, but they are significant factors towards the 50% grades and coursework slice in the Haas application. Here is what you should expect from both classes.
