Our mission is to educate leaders for business & society. The drive to build successful organizations that make a difference inspires our curriculum, our approach to research, and our community.

We seek students who care deeply about the problems afflicting our world. 

We equip them with the knowledge, the resources, and the networks to pursue positive and ambitious change.

Melanie Fan ’24 describes how New Haven’s world-class museums—and the opportunity to enroll in art and film classes—drew her to SOM.

Because ‘business and society’ is such a dual focus at SOM, we want students to think about not only, how can I be enacting these principles in my workplace, but also, how can I be a better citizen? How can I do this work in a way that permeates all aspects of my life?

Starting an MBA can be a big transition, but the warmth and openness of this community made it feel seamless. That’s not necessarily what I expected in business school, but it's something that sets this program apart.
