D.K. Kim and the Haas School of Business

D.K. Kim has been involved with the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, since 1997, contributing over $2 million to the university.

The D.K. Kim Foundation chose Haas as the recipient of funding due to its dedication to developing its students as more than just MBAs, but rather as global citizens with a responsibility to improve their communities. Along with Haas, the D.K. Kim Foundation believes in exemplifying four defining principles for success:

  • Question the Status Quo
  • Confidence without Attitude
  • Students Always
  • Beyond Yourself


D.K. Kim is a Builder of Berkeley, the highest echelon of recognition, reserved for donors that have made gifts of $1 million or more.  He is also is in the Haas Hall of Fame, which celebrates alumni and friends who have contributed to Haas and live by the above principles.
