We are excited to announce that the 2014-2015 Yale SOM MBA application is now live. In addition, we are announcing an important change to our application fee: we are reducing the application fee for potential students with lower incomes. Most applicants will pay the standard fee of $225, but those applicants whose total annual compensation is under $20,000 per year will pay $175, and those with total compensation under $10,000 will pay $125.Read More
