UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business announced this week that Lisa Feldman will become the new executive director of the school’s MBA Career Management Group. In this role, Feldman will oversee employer relations and career advising for the school’s three MBA programs as well as for MBA alumni.
“We will be building on student and alumni feedback about their career search needs and also on industry and technology trends to maintain and accelerate our momentum in the marketplace,” says Feldman, who graduated from the full-time Berkeley MBA program in 1995. “I truly believe that we are responsible for launching the careers of the leaders of the future, and I’m proud to be part of that mission.”
The new director feels that with an MBA degree, you can do anything you want. According to the school, Feldman has worked in the Haas MBA Career Management Group since 2002 , serving as an account manager, associate director of MBA recruiting and, most recently, director of recruiting. Prior to Haas, she held marketing and services strategy positions at (Haas founded) CascadeWorks, Silicon Graphics, and Beth Israel Hospital/Harvard Medical School.
“Lisa will focus on ensuring that the Career Management Group continues its trajectory of excellence while also exploring new ideas and practices to respond to rapidly evolving student and employer needs,” Haas Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Chizuk said in a recent announcement.
Feldman succeeds Abby Scott, who recently moved to the Center for Executive Education to become its director of custom programs.
