MBAs Suit Up to Taste Scotch, Raise Funds

Going glam for the evening: Full-time MBA students Adrienne Cademenos, Robbie Bhathal, and Pulak Patel, all MBA 12.

More than 200 Berkeley MBA students–from the Berkeley-Columbia, Evening & Weekend, and Full-time MBA Programs toured Scotland without leaving Haas.

Students from the Evening & Weekend MBA Program share a toast: Michelle Paitich and Mike Han, both MBA 12; and Vanessa Cordero, MBA 14.

One Sunday evening in March, they turned out for the newly-revived Haas tradition of black-tie whiskey tasting. Started years ago by then-professor, now-Dean Lyons and Professor Andy Rose, the new event raised more than $5,000 for Challenge 4 Charity and, as Rose says, “provided a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of a fantastically complex drink with friends and colleagues.”

Distilling the essence of a perfect evening: Whisky hand-picked by Rose; libations poured by Program Office staff; and music performed by Dean Lyons on guitar.
