As more and more markets are open to more and more companies and technology connects people in revolutionary ways, top talent and ideas can come from any country. We believe that an effective leader must have a deep understanding of the increasing interconnectedness and complexity of the global marketplace. Yale SOM’s programs, people, and disposition reflect a view over the horizon to a world in which business leaders must work both in developed countries and a growing cohort of emerging economies, and must be attuned to the particular business, legal, political, social, and cultural environments of each, while maintaining their vision and principles.

Global Network for Advanced Management

The Global Network for Advanced Management fosters substantive ties among the world’s leading business schools, providing opportunities for faculty to exchange ideas and for students to interact with their peers and experience the diversity of vantage points that will characterize any environment in which they will lead.

International Study

Every first-year Yale MBA student travels to a business capital in a developed or emerging economy as part of the required International Experience course; each trip serves as a case study in learning about the complexities of a business environment from a leader's point of view. MBA-E and MAM students participate in these courses and in other elective courses involving travel and consulting projects in a number of countries.

Master of Advanced Management

The Master of Advanced Management (MAM) program assembles a cohort of accomplished students from countries around the world for a one-year program of study at Yale. MAM students enrich the Yale SOM classroom and network with their diverse international backgrounds.
