Thomas Mehl ’17

Master of Advanced Management

“I attended the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business to expose myself to different industries and people from diverse backgrounds. When I wanted to dig a bit deeper into natural resources, I discovered the MAM: the perfect opportunity to supplement the MBA by adding a year at Yale to specialize in forestry-related subjects that really excited and interested me.”

MBA

“What Yale SOM does very, very well is leverage its network across Yale University.. It really is one cohesive network. I knew the Yale brand was strong—there’s no question about that. But it’s hard to really understand just how strong it is until you join the community.”
