Curriculum

Connect to Yale. Connect to the World.

The Master of Advanced Management (MAM) program opens the doors of Yale University to exceptional MBA graduates from the Global Network for Advanced Management, preparing them to assume roles among the vanguard of an interconnected world.

Our Curriculum

Across all sectors, today’s global leaders must be outstanding managers. They must understand how competition works, how organizations function, and what makes leaders effective. They must have a firm grasp on major global risks and trends, thrive in cross-cultural environments, and know how to make meaningful connections across knowledge domains to craft innovative, entrepreneurial solutions to vexing problems. The MAM curriculum is built to enable students to nimbly meet these challenges of global leadership. 

As an MAM student, you will participate in a required series of courses and discussions oriented around major trends in global business and the role of business leaders in today's society. You will also have the opportunity to curate your own intellectual journey at Yale University.

All MAM students are expected to participate fully in MAM required courses across both the fall and spring semesters. Representing 20% of the total credits needed for graduation, MAM required courses brings together the diverse cohort for regular opportunities for exchange and learning.

All MAM students are also expected to build a customized selection of elective courses that meet their personal interests and professional goals. Representing 80% of the total credits needed, the majority of the  MAM student’s course of study is self-designed through this selection of electives from across both Yale SOM and Yale University.
