Sam Silverlieb '14
Internship: Morgan Stanley
There are incredibly talented people at Yale. The more we can develop connections between different parts of the campus, the better it will be for everyone.
I’ve always had an interest in the interaction between business and government. After gaining exposure to the private sector as a management consultant with Oliver Wyman, I got a taste of public sector life while working in international law at Israel’s Ministry of Justice in Tel Aviv. Given my interests, work experience, and SOM’s mission of educating leaders for business and society, I knew that Yale SOM was the natural fit for me.
This year, students at Yale Law School organized the first Yale Global Business Ethics Conference. I worked as part of the conference committee and, because of that involvement, I was named the vice president of programming for the Yale Law and Business Society. When combined with my position as co-chair of the Business and Politics Club here at SOM, I’ll have the ability to develop integrated programming that addresses the overlap between the two organizations.
There are incredibly talented people at Yale, both at SOM and in the broader university. As I see it, the more that we can develop connections between different parts of the campus, the better it will be for everyone. To me, this dynamic is what makes SOM so unique.
