After we first published this story in August we received numerous messages informing us that we had sorely under-reported the number of DVC students who were accepted into the prestigious UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. 

We are extremely sorry to have left out the names of some DVC students who achieved this honor. We are, however, extremely happy to announce that the previously reported number of DVC transferees to Haas has jumped from 15 to an amazing 22! Congratulations to all of these talented students!

Rohan Ashar, Leah Boquilon, Debby Budiman, Chung Ming Frankie Cheung, Sai Kit Justin Choi, Allison Frank, Jean Carlo Hoyos, Yi Hsin Hsieh, Nita Iwan, Madison Jimenez, Brian Kim, Jiyoung Kim, Peter Kim, Witdiwat Kuakpetoon, Erika Nelson, Sofia Putri,  Parker Steele, Shinzu Jona Tan,  Michelle Tigris, Harvey Tjiupek,Kenny Yu, and Yijia Zhu.

Thank you to Leah Boquilon, who with other students, worked tirelessly to produce the complete list of transferees.



haas transfersTWENTY TWO Diablo Valley College business students have been accepted into the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley for transfer admission in fall 2013.

The Haas School of Business is one of the top business schools in the country, and annually receives approximately 1,475 undergraduate transfer applications from students throughout the state, country and world. It is a highly competitive process, with these top students vying to be one of only about 90 students who are admitted as undergraduate transfers.

The 22 students from DVC make up 24 percent of all those who were admitted.

“DVC faculty are to be congratulated for working hard with these business students in the classroom, as mentors, and as advisors for the two DVC student business clubs, Enactus and Phi Beta Lambda,” said Professor Carolyn Seefer, MBA, of the DVC Business Administration Department. 

“These 22 students all excelled in their business courses, and almost all of them are members of one or both business clubs, several of them serving as officers. Their hard work and dedication helped to prepare them for success, and next year DVC will be extremely well-represented in the Haas School of Business class of 2015.”
