Haas feeds growing appetite for the business of sustainable food

University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business

John Monaghan, MBA 20, arrived at Berkeley Haas on a mission to dive deeper into the business of food. Like many of the 20 full-time MBA students who have landed coveted internships and jobs this year in the food and beverage industry—at companies ranging from Clif Bar to Kraft—Monaghan is benefiting from the Sustainable Food Initiative at Haas. The umbrella effort, launched in April 2018 by the Center for Responsible Business, combines food-focused courses, cutting-edge research, entrepreneurship training, events with food industry luminaries, and key industry partnerships. The initiative both reflects and cultivates a growing interest in the food business at Haas and Berkeley.
