Full-time MBA | 2 year degree: MBA students average 4.5 years of work experience prior to starting at Yale SOM. First-year MBAs start in August and seek a summer internship for the following May-August; second-year MBAs seek full—time employment after graduation, with the vast majority of students graduating in May
Silver Scholar MBAs | 3+ year degree: Silver Scholars matriculate at Yale SOM directly from undergraduate, usually without any full-time work experience. They start in August with all first-year MBAs. However, instead of seeking a summer internship, they seek an extended work experience (minimum one year) before returning to Yale SOM for their second year of MBA coursework. Some Silver Scholars fulfill this requirement with a single, year-long, early-career or MBA position, while other students secure multiple short-term internships throughout the year. During their second-year at Yale SOM, they recruit for full-time roles alongside the other graduating MBAs.
Master of Advanced Management (MAM)| 1 year degree: MAM students have earned, or are concurrently earning, an MBA from a partner Global Network for Advanced Management business school. MAM students average 6 years of work experience prior to starting at Yale SOM and typically recruit with second-year MBA students for full-time roles that start after May graduation.
Master’s Degree in Global Business and Society (GBS) | 1 year degree: GBS students have earned, or are concurrently earning, a Master In Management from a partner Global Network for Advanced Management business school. GBS students have less than three years work experience prior to starting at Yale SOM and typically recruit for full-time early career roles that start after May graduation.
Master’s Degree in Asset Management (AM) | 1 year degree: AM students come directly from undergraduate programs or are early in their careers. In the AM program, they learn both the theory and practical application of asset management. The degree requires work experience during the program, whether a part-time role during a semester or a full-time “winternship” between semesters. Students also recruit for full-time early career roles that start after May graduation.
MBA for Executives (EMBA) | 2 year degree: EMBAs matriculate with a wide variety of work experience, and continue working during their academic studies. For those students who choose to recruit, they are available for full-time immediate hire roles and for full-time roles that start after May graduation.
