Kristiana Raube, University of California Berkeley

Kristiana Raube is associate director of the Institute for Business & Social Impact. She is also director of both the Graduate Program in Health Management and the International Business Development Program at Berkeley-Haas, as well as an adjunct professor.

Raube has spent her career teaching and researching health and poverty issues, and her work has taken her from the housing projects of Chicago to villages across Africa and Asia. In her 15 years at Haas, Raube has been a key architect of programs that combine the study of business with the broader goals of healthcare access, poverty reduction, and social justice.

In 1999, the Haas School of Business recruited Raube to revitalize its Graduate Program In Health Management. While teaching and overseeing the health care program, Raube also carried out consulting and research projects in over 60 countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. And as director since 2010 of the International Business Development Program at Haas, she now places some 140 MBA students per year on business and non-profit consulting projects around the world.
