"Since my background was so much more theoretical, I got in touch with a Berkeley MFE alum that had gone through the French university system, like me. He was able to explain and translate some of the finance fundamentals for me. That sort of camaraderie is typical of Haas students and alumni. And, before I started my internship, I used the Haas Alumni Network to connect with alumni who were already working at Citi. They were very helpful and open with their time and their insights."

"There must have been at least 15 countries represented in my class, from Korea and China to Greece, Bulgari, and Colombia. We reflected the global economy that we would be working in during our careers. Because we all came to Haas with different backgrounds, needs and goals, we could really tailor the program to fit our needs. I built a true business and personal expertise at Haas."
