We started the trip with celebratory caipirinhas (a traditional Brazilian drink made with sugar, lime and cachaca, which is a sugar cane liquor) as we reviewed our impressively full 10-day schedule of meetings, prepared for us by our fabulous 2nd year TAs, Priscilla Balla and Kalil Diaz. In the past two days, we’ve enjoyed candid meetings with top Brazilian executives in industries ranging from consulting to oil and gas to energy and beyond.

As an MBA candidate who was also considering a master’s in social work or public policy in 2012, I was drawn early on to Yale’s mission of “educating leaders for business and society,” which implied that neither business nor society stood—or could stand—alone. Founded as a degree program for a master’s in public and private management, Yale SOM first appealed to me because of its rich history of and focus on cross-sector engagement, and upon matriculation, I loved that the mission rang true not only in our recruiting materials but actually in our conversations, coursework and professional opportunities.

 Growing up in Europe and later living in the U.S., I was used to thinking of the world as one of hubs and spokes. The hubs were Europe and the U.S., and maybe Japan, and the spokes reached into what was universally referred to as developing countries. You would fly in and out. There was no need to connect across.  No longer.
