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.

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.
