Our admissions team receives many questions each week about our rolling admissions process. In contrast to the typical admissions process for a full-time MBA, rolling admissions allows you to finalize and submit an application for review, and receive a prompt admissions decision, at any point before the final deadline. For the EMBA Class of 2017, which arrives on campus on July 24, 2015, the final deadline is April 30, 2015.

"May the luck of the Irish be with ya!" With that jovial wish from one of my classmates in his best imitation Irish accent, I wrapped up my weekend of classes in New Haven and headed to the airport for a flight to Dublin, Ireland for Global Network Week. I was joined in Ireland by three full-time and seven EMBA students from Yale to study Executive Decision Making at the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business at University College of Dublin (UCD).

On July 25th, the 52 members of the Yale School of Management Class of 2016 met each other to officially begin orientation and “boot camp.” Indeed, we are a “class of firsts” (as my classmate Marc Peterman so well-articulated in his recent blog post). By the last day of “boot camp” on August 8, the class coalesced, guards came down, and new friendships were formed. We would return to Evans Hall for class every 14 days for the next 21 months.

That brings me back to the decision. No, this is not Lebron choosing to take his talents to South Beach. This is me choosing to take the little time I do have and commit to a rigorous 22-month program. The goal of which is to be better prepared for the leadership challenges I expect to face in the future.  This decision rests on a plan – a way to accommodate all of the people in my life who have demands on my time.  From home to work, I could fill the day with tasks. So how was I going to fit in school?

After our two-week SOM “boot-camp,” I collapsed into my Amtrak seat looking forward to a few hours of sleep as I headed home from a jam-packed weekend of learning.  I felt exhausted, humbled, and had a strong desire to rejoin my family – all predictable.  As Connecticut vanished outside my window, I pondered how I could best fit this program into my already busy life? And why?

Since the start of our program in late July, time has flown by and the Class of 2016 is already a month and a half into this colossal endeavor that we’ve collectively undertaken.  After our 2 week in-house residency experience – also aptly called boot camp – we returned back to our homes in Baton Rouge and Sao Paulo and Chicago, to our awaiting families, and to about 5,000 unread work emails.

As the class of 2014 integrates back into society post MBA, many of our classmates continue to impress in new capacities. As a class, we set and achieved many lofty goals. Yet, one of the final goals we set forth was to fundraise in parallel with a charity providing opportunities for children with life threatening illnesses. The mission was to raise apple funds to support a child on their "wish."

Yale SOM’s founding mission to educate leaders for business and society was the motivating factor for the Yale MBA for Executives program’s expansion to include  areas of focus in Asset Management, Healthcare, and Sustainability. A recent report from Net Impact that highlights the high level of interest among business students in how businesses can have a positive social and environmental impact demonstrates how well aligned Yale SOM’s mission is with the needs of our time.
