From the site of Haas School of Business’ Global Initiatives:
Global Initiatives was founded in 2005 at the Haas School of Business by students with deep interests in international development in a wide range of sectors including Public Health, IT & Telecommunications, Energy, Financial Services, Education and Agriculture.
Realizing that UC Berkeley students are surrounded by some of the leading graduate programs in these fields, Global Initiatives is now focused on bringing together a network of graduate students interested in exploring the connection between development and enterprise.
Our aim to connect the Berkeley community with leading practitioners, researchers and specialists in related fields to understand current practices and explore future career opportunities. We still explore a variety of issues from bottom-of-the pyramid oriented organizations to the role of multinationals operating in emerging markets.
They sponsor the social enterprise and development courses and events at Haas. Check them out and sign up for their listserv!
