Yale SOM students are a busy group. Classes alone are enough to keep them occupied full time. But for the average student, learning in the classroom is just one aspect of the SOM experience. The school offers more than 40 student-run clubs, which organize everything from speaker series to intensive interview prep to pro bono consulting opportunities. Add in planning industry-leading conferences and social events, and life at SOM becomes very full very quickly.
For Nikhil Bumb ’14, the highlight of this frenzy of activity has been Global Social Enterprise, a student club that provides consulting services to organizations in developing nations. It’s one of the things that attracted him to Yale SOM. Now he’s one of the club leaders. “It’s been one of my most fulfilling experiences here,” he said. “I’m very excited I got the opportunity to lead it.”
