In collaboration with the Executive MBA class of 2014, Berkeley’s Graduate Social Club is pleased to announce another networking event designed for cross-disciplinary exchange, L.E.W.T. This event will take place at Haas on May 2nd (6:30 to 9:30 PM in the Wells Fargo Room, 4th floor Cheit Hall, Haas School of Business), and it will represent a great opportunity for academic students to share their ideas with seasoned business professionals.

LEWT stands for Let’s Enable Weak Ties, which is a reference to contemporary social network theory and a bow to shameful acronyms. This GSC series of events, offered to Berkeley graduate students only, encourages students from one discipline to share and advance ideas with business professionals of the Executive MBA program.

R.S.V.P. for this event is required. Please RSVP at http://tinyurl.com/gsclewt2
We’ll be accepting people that did not RSVP on first come, first served basis

This event is sponsored by the 2014 EMBA Entrepreneurship Group
The inaugural “Let’s Enable Weak Ties” mixer was held in January and had a great turnout, about 150 at its peak.

SOME REASONS FOR ATTENDING LEWT:
“Meeting people outside of my department.”
“Meeting new people and learning about their backgrounds and interests. I especially liked the fact that the event allowed Haas students to meet/mingle with students all across campus. The free drinks were pretty awesome, too.”
I liked getting to meet business students and hear about what they did. Business people have a lot of interesting insight to offer us pure science students in jobs available beyond academia.
