The Business of Making a Difference Starts Here
Community partnerships are the cornerstone of our programs
We provide community partners with the talents and energy of Berkeley-Haas students who have benefited from the resources, training, and applications in our programs. These student leaders truly are the future of the social sector and they understand how to apply practical and creative actions to challenging situations.
Our programs prepare students to apply innovative frameworks to real-world challenges. These opportunities are possible because of the close involvement of our community partners.
Berkeley Board Fellows: Each year, 40+ select organizations host 65 Board Fellows who collectively contribute more than 8,400 hours of service.
Social Sector Solutions: In each course, 10 organizations serve as clients to student teams and benefit from more than 900 hours of consultant work. In addition to two classroom instructors, each team is mentored by a McKinsey & Company consultant throughout the project.
Internships: Almost 20 students per year are supported by Haas For Students and special summer projects.
Classroom Lectures: Social Sector leaders are guest speakers in many of our courses, providing an experienced perspective to the next generation of leaders.
