Asset management forms a critical link in how individuals and organizations prepare for the future — from the mutual fund that underlies millions of retirement accounts to the endowment that sustains a major cultural institution to the sovereign wealth fund that benefits a whole nation. With new technologies, ever-expanding global markets, shifting regulatory requirements, and increasing competition, the demands and opportunities in the industry have grown exponentially more complex. To succeed, you need to master the technical skills of an investor. To be a leader, you also need an in-depth understanding of how markets and organizations function across economies, and the vision to see how global trends are going to affect your business.
The healthcare sector is undergoing rapid, momentous change. The combination of ongoing technological development and far-reaching regulatory change means that no business model can survive without constant revision and rejuvenation. Hospitals, insurers, pharmaceutical companies, investors, start-ups and other organizations all need to compete in a uniquely complex and fast-evolving strategic space. To lead in healthcare, to launch something new, to create value for your stakeholders, you need a fundamental understanding of markets and organizations combined with deep insight into healthcare's challenges.
With sky-high commodity prices, resource scarcity, and growing public scrutiny of business operations throughout the entire value chain, achieving greater social and environmental sustainability has become a managerial imperative across industries. Forward-looking businesses are converting constraints traditionally viewed as challenges to growth into the inspiration and motivation for product-, operational-, and business model innovation. To lead in your organization and make sustainability not a question of corporate responsibility but one of corporate success, you need to combine in-depth understanding of markets and organizations with a grasp of major trends and a facility with frameworks for driving transformative innovation.
I really saw it as essential to get an MBA. The things that I learned in Probability and Game Theory and Negotiations classes at Yale I was literally using the next week. The disciplined financial approach that I've learned at Yale, and the way to think strategically and analytically both from probability and game theory standpoints, all come into play.
I had two outstanding coaches – one a professional, and the other a peer from my class. They forced me to believe in myself, to question my own self-doubt, and in the end, to dare to achieve more than I thought was possible.- Dr. Anees Chagpar '14
Edward P. Evans Hall
The 242,000-square-foot Edward P. Evans Hall is the new home of the Yale School of Management, having opened in January 2014. The campus houses state-of-the-art classrooms, faculty offices, academic centers, and student and meeting spaces organized around an enclosed courtyard. Its design is both striking and functional. For instance, the transparency of the building strengthens the sense of community among our students and signals our aspiration to educate business leaders with extended lines of sight.
