Haas@Work is the Applied Innovation program within the Institute for Business Innovation at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business.
The mission of Haas @ Work is two-fold:
- To give students an inside ‘hands on’ look at the corporate innovation process, and help them develop the skills, tools, and strategic framework for ‘path bending’ leadership.
- To foster connections between Haas and industry, and support the school’s leadership as a hub for the evolving field of design-thinking and demand-driven innovation in corporate settings.
The program runs multiple project-based innovation classes, curates an industry roundtable, and coordinates with other colleges and program across the Berkeley campus.
We believe that innovation is the centerpiece of corporate strategy, and that the proper tools, processes and organizational design can make innovation a repeatable process and source of competitive advantage.
