It's been a great trip to Seattle, and tonight I'll be taking the red-eye flight back to the world of Yale SOM. It's been a productive trip. I spent almost 12 hours interviewing with nine people over two days here, but I'm leaving with a verbal offer that should become a formal offer early next week. With that in hand, I need to shift my focus back to school.
Greetings SOM Blog readers! I'm Patrick, a first year MBA student here at Yale SOM. I hail from Toronto, Canada and prior to coming here to pursue an MBA I was an investment banking analyst with a Canadian investment bank. I came to SOM for its strength in the nonprofit sector, small class size, and most of all its unique culture among leading MBA programs. As for the internship hunt (a big topic that is on the minds of probably 99.99% of first-year students at this time), the application process has really only just begun for me.
Hello there. Let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Paul and I am currently a first-year student at SOM focusing in Marketing and Strategy. I'm originally from Rockland County, NY, but I grew up in Cleveland, OH where I have spent the last 4+ years working at Progressive Insurance as a project lead for their website. After SOM, I intend to start a career in product development where I can use my technical background and my business knowledge to align product lines to changing consumer demands.
