Alumni Spotlight

Since 1931, Berkeley College has prepared generations of leaders to achieve lifelong success in dynamic careers. Alumni enter the workforce with the skills and knowledge to innovate and make an impact in fields like business, finance, technology, fashion, public service, design, healthcare, law, criminal justice, and many more. Established in 2021 in honor of Berkeley College’s 90th anniversary, the Berkeley Proud: Alumni Spotlight project continues to tell the stories and celebrates the achievements of influential graduates. The diverse backgrounds of alumni, coupled with their talents and unique career paths, were enhanced by the education each alumnus received at Berkeley College.
