A Global Education Without Leaving the Country

The New York Times lists Yale SOM as the top choice for MBA candidates seeking a global business perspective.

Looking for the most global education in the United States without leaving the country? Look no further than Yale SOM. In an April 7 article published online, the New York Times listed the Yale School of Management as the top school to receive a global business education in the United States.

The article cites SOM’s role in the creation of the Global Network for Advanced Management and the resulting Global Network courses, Global Network Weeks, and shared raw cases that all member schools take part in. The article states:

‘The concept of the network was waiting to happen,’ Dr. Edward A. Snyder says, ‘and Yale is a great convener.’

Since its establishment in 1976, the Yale School of Management has insisted that business, government and nonprofit leaders need to better understand one another, giving the school a distinct public/private flavor. Dr. Snyder makes clear: ‘We’re not abandoning the school’s longstanding mission. Environmental sustainability, for example, is not going to get solved by the government, the market or the nonprofit sector alone. We’re continuing within the frame, but with a more modern—and more global—view.’
