About Haas

Haas School of Business
As the second-oldest business school in the United States, the Haas School of Business at the University of California Berkeley is one of the world’s leading producers of new ideas and knowledge in all areas of business — which includes the distinction of having two of its faculty members receive the Nobel Prize in Economics over the past 15 years. 

The school’s mission is to develop innovative business leaders — individuals who redefine how we do business by putting new ideas into action in all areas of their organizations, and who do so responsibly.  The school’s distinctive culture is defined by four key principles — question the status quo; confidence without attitude; students always; and, beyond yourself.

History of Haas

The visionary concept of a College of Commerce at the University of California was first proposed in an 1883 commencement address by Arthur Rodgers, a Berkeley graduate and well-traveled businessman. He stirred his audience, inspired the governor, and set in motion ideas that, 15 years later, would create the nation's first college of commerce at a public university. At the time of Rodgers' commencement address, the university itself was only 15 years old. It owed its existence to the gold rush pioneers and the preachers and teachers who had followed them west. Their collective vision for a College of California predated even the admission of California as a state in 1850.
