Global Pre-MBA Leadership Program

Learn how an MBA can help you make an impact.

A two-week program for recent graduates from cultural backgrounds under-represented in graduate management education; the Global Pre-MBA Leadership Program will help you learn more about global business and hone your leadership skills, while introducing you to the benefits of an MBA degree.



Developing leadership skills through interdisciplinary learning in a culturally diverse environment.

The Global Pre-MBA Leadership Program invites you to consider your capacity to do well while making a positive impact in the world.

The curriculum will be anchored around classroom sessions with Yale faculty, utilization of raw case studies, facilitated  peer learning and engagement with practitioners from across sectors and countries.

You will be part of a diverse and global learning cohort and the program will give space for self-development.  You will be invited to better identify your personal and professional goals and your strengths and weaknesses through assessment and coaching.

Global Diversity

Global Diversity

A central mission of the program is to expose students to global diversity. By meeting students from the United States and around the world, typically under-represented in management education, all participants will gain an understanding of the complexities within and between societies, a critical element of leadership in today’s flatter, but nonconvergent, world. One 2013 student commented, "One of the best parts of the program was the diversity and type of people in the classroom. I did not expect to get as close as I did to the many smart people selected to be in the program. We laughed, struggled, and learned together which really allowed me to appreciate how important it was to expose myself to people from different backgrounds and cultures."
