Berkeley-Haas Defining Principles
Question the Status Quo
We lead by championing bold ideas, taking intelligent risks and accepting sensible failures. This means speaking our minds even when it challenges convention. We thrive at the world’s epicenter of innovation.
Confidence Without Attitude
We make decisions based on evidence and analysis, giving us the confidence to act without arrogance. We lead through trust and collaboration.
We are a community designed for curiosity and lifelong pursuit of personal and intellectual growth. This is not a place for those who feel they have learned all they need to learn.
We shape our world by leading ethically and responsibly. As stewards of our enterprises, we take the longer view in our decisions and actions. This often means putting larger interests above our own.
