DMEC Programs

Alumni Events

From social mixers to alumni speakers, DMEC provides students an opportunity to network and learn from Cal alumni working at the most creative and influential companies in the digital media and entertainment industries.

DMEC Speaker Series

Each fall, DMEC organizes thought-provoking speakers from top companies and prominent brands in digital media and entertainment. Past speakers have included representatives from Facebook, Apple, Electronic Arts, Google, Zynga, Pixar, Mozilla, LucasArts, and more.

Career Treks

Treks offer students the chance to meet with executives and recruiters while going “behind the scenes” at leading companies. Some treks offer ‘resume books’ for the hosting company to support recruiting pipelines with driven Haas MBA candidates. Past treks have taken club members to Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, and Silicon Valley to visit offices including Twitter, Google, Eventbrite, Zynga, Pinterest, Pandora, Hulu, Electronic Arts, Pocket Gems and more!

If you represent a company in the digital media and entertainment space and would like to bring a delegation of students to your company, we'd love to hear from you.
