UC Berkeley-Haas Graduates Enjoy Strong Employment Opportunities

300px-Haas_School_of_Business_central_courtyard1Early employment data shows that MBA graduates from the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley are landing top jobs and top salaries, the school reports.

The firms hiring the most Haas graduates this year include McKinsey & Co., Google, JPMorgan, Kaiser and Amazon, and salaries and signing bonuses are continuing an upward climb. Other tip hiring firms include Deloitte Consulting, Samsung, Bain, Adobe, Microsoft and Zynga.

But traditional MBA sectors are not the only ones seeing strong hiring, according to Lisa Feldman, executive director of the Career Management Group. “Real estate is a strong area for us this year, and we are also seeing a strong class of entrepreneurs,” she said in an article on the Haas website. “In addition to the entrepreneurs themselves, we have a growing number of students exploring the impact they might have in smaller organizations and seeking experience with early-stage startups,” she added.

Impact investing is also an area of growing interest for Haas MBAs. One student, Rakesh Apte, MBA 14, is headed to work at Santa Barbara social venture capital firm Eleos Foundation, and he credits Haas’ commitment to the social venture community for helping him land the job. “I’m passionate about promoting social entrepreneurs who are using market forces to solve some of the world’s toughest problems,” he said in the Haas newsroom article.
