Courses in Sustainability: Yes
Sustainability course is: Optional
Description: The Haas MBA Program offers both courses that focus explicitly on sustainability and courses that weave aspects of sustainability into more traditional subjects. Courses on sustainability include the Metrics of Sustainability, Strategic CSR & Sustainability, the Power of Social Technology for Good, Energy and Environmental Markets, Social Investing, and more. Other, more traditional courses weave sustainability issues into coursework: Game Theory, Investment Strategies and Styles, International Business, and Business Model Innovation. The Center for Responsible Business sponsors many of Haas’ sustainability-related classes and offers extracurricular courses and workshops including Designing for Sustainability, Life Cycle Analysis for Business Leaders, Sustainability and Finance, and more.
Research Opportunities in Sustainability: Yes
Description: The school’s Center for Responsible Business pioneered the "Strategic CSR & Projects" course connecting students to executives at Apple, Hewlett-Packard, Levi Strauss, eBay, etc. to develop strategies that create competitive advantage through positive social impact. The CSR Scholars Program and the LifeScan Community Relations Graduate Fellows Program take students into leading companies to apply CSR theories and frameworks in innovative strategy work. And the multidisciplinary Dow Sustainable Products and Solutions Program funds and supports student research that promises to make a tangible difference. The Haas Socially Responsible Investment Fund is the first SRI fund at a leading business school, and the Moskowitz Prize for Socially Responsible Investing is the first and only global award recognizing outstanding quantitative work on socially responsible investing.
School's environmental commitment:  
1: Berkeley-Haas has created a culture of thinking broadly about challenges to society, including sustainability; Haas’ defining principles as set out by Dean Rich Lyons include “Beyond Yourself” and “Question the Status Quo.”
2: Berkeley-Haas offers students a variety of extracurricular opportunities to engage on topics of sustainability, including speaker series, student clubs, case competitions, conferences, workshops, and consulting engagements. The Global Social Venture Competition, Haas Socially Responsible Investment Fund, International Business Development, Global Initiatives at Haas, Net Impact, and the Corporate Responsibility Fellows Program are just a few examples. Many of these are offered through related centers, including the Center for Responsible Business and the energy Institute at Haas.
3: Berkeley-Haas has integrated sustainability into its curriculum both through classes focused on sustainability topics and by weaving sustainability themes into more traditional business classes.
