MBA/MEM or MF with Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies

Yale University created the first joint management-environment degree in 1982, recognizing the importance of integrating the two disciplines. The joint-degree program is intended to prepare business leaders and environmental managers with the tools to address the complex relationship between markets and the environment.

The joint-degree program offers an MBA in combination with either a master of environmental management (MEM) or a master of forestry (MF).

Structure

Joint-degree students spend one of the first two years at Yale SOM, during which they take the integrated MBA curriculum, and the other at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (FES). In the third year, they take electives at both schools.

Admissions

Joint-degree applicants must apply to and be admitted to both programs independently. Applicants may apply to both programs simultaneously, apply to Yale FES during their first year at Yale SOM, or apply to Yale SOM during their first year at Yale FES.
