The Student Experience

Yale is a place to think about big ideas. And to build knowledge, skills, and connections that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

Work with other students to bring top industry leaders together for a conference. Connect with the Global Network for Advanced Management. Help a nonprofit in South Africa reach more people. Have lunch with a Fortune 500 CEO. You have all of Yale and all of the world available to you.

A Team Effort

Each fall, a majority of the first-year class gathers for a day-long case competition, sponsored by the Consulting Club and Net Impact. Students work together in small teams to think through a business problem with a social dimension. One team takes home the prize at the end of the day, but every participant builds connections and professional skills.

Student Clubs

Clubs host  conferences and bring speakers to campus, keeping you informed about the latest developments in your industry. They'll help you prepare for the recruiting process with boot camps and mock interviews. And they'll provide leadership opportunities, allowing you to put into practice what you learn in class.

Clubs at SOM through the Eyes of a Rugby Club Leader

Hilde Dahmer ’16: This year, for the first time, there is a women’s team for the Yale Graduate Rugby Club. We went from just me in September 2014 to six noble women playing at the Duke tournament in April 2015, to this fall having 17 women on the team from all over the graduate and professional schools at Yale. We play fixtures, we have training once a week, and we’ve even started fitness sessions! We recently went on a brewery tour after our game with UMass Law. We even have sponsors. How did we do this?
