Read about our Programs:
The Fisher CIO Leadership Program offers events, courses, and activities of interest to UC Berkeley students and faculty and to public and private sector executives. The Program facilitates development of beneficial relationships between corporate executives and the faculty, staff and students at the University of California, Berkeley.
The Program’s mission is to serve UC Berkeley students and faculty and executives throughout the San Francisco Bay region and beyond who are involved or interested in information technology. Executives have the opportunity to meet with faculty and students who have common technical and business interests, to participate in or help to develop research programs in business use of IT, to receive invitations to Berkeley and corporate IT events, and to engage in other activities.
The Fisher CIO Leadership Program was formed in late 1992 as an outgrowth of the Information Technology Management program of UC-Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. In the mid 1990s the center received a generous gift from Don Fisher (the co-founder of The Gap) and his name was added to ours. Organizationally, the center is one of the activities of the Institute for Business Innovation (IBI) within the Haas School of Business at UC-Berkeley.
