The required application materials include:

Personal Information

Applicants must provide basic information about where they are from, where they currently reside, and the best way for Yale SOM to contact them. Please be sure that we have up-to-date contact information, especially your email address and mobile number.

Academic Transcript(s)

Applicants must upload an electronic transcript for every post-secondary institution they have attended. The transcript does not need to be official. However, Yale SOM may request official copies of all academic transcripts if you are admitted to the program.

Essay of Intent

Applicants are asked to tell us more about their background and how it connects to the mission of the program in a short essay.


One professional recommendation is required. If the applicant is currently enrolled in school, the recommendation should be provided by a collegiate or internship supervisor, who can comment on either professional achievements or accomplishments in an extracurricular activity, focusing on leadership abilities. 

Virtual Interview

Selected students will be invited to participate in an evaluative virtual interview with a member of the Global Pre-MBA Leadership Program admissions committee.  Interview invitations are extended based on strength of the overall application.
