This unique program provides international students with access to Berkeley Haas' top-notch faculty, courses and networks within the innovative ecosystem of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Through the Berkeley Haas Global Access Program (BHGAP), top-qualifying international students from both business and non-business backgrounds gain the knowledge, skills and connections necessary to excel as tomorrow's innovators and global leaders.
International students apply through UC Berkeley Extension. Students take 12 units of coursework and take courses with their international cohort in the Haas School of Business. Courses are taught specifically for students in BHGAP by Berkeley faculty. In addition to guaranteed courses, students receive graduate school admission workshops, one-on-one career counseling, cohort lunches, professional development workshops, company visits, and immersive California trips. More detailed information is available on the Berkeley Haas Global Access Program BHGAP program website.
In addition to BHGAP, UC Berkeley Extension hosts Berkeley Global Access programs in a variety of topics including Entreprenurship, Environmental Design, English Literature, and more.
