Master’s in Global Business and Society Application Is Open

The Office of Admissions provides an overview of the application process, including a new requirement for applicants this year.

The Yale School of Management Office of Admissions for the Master’s in Global Business and Society (GBS) program is pleased to announce that the application for the Class of 2023 is now open. The Round 1 application deadline is January 6, 2022.

Our team invites you to join an upcoming virtual information session to learn more about the GBS program at Yale SOM and hear your questions answered live. Assistant Dean of Global Network Programs Camino de Paz and Associate Director of Admissions Kate Navarro will introduce you to the program and walk you through the curriculum, Yale resources, and elements of the application. We will be hosting various webinars throughout the rest of the year, including student and alumni panel discussions. These are great opportunities to hear from current and former students as they share their experiences as members of the Yale community.

In addition to the webinars, there are other ways to learn more about what makes the GBS program distinctive. We encourage you to engage with the GBS Admissions Ambassadors to learn about their student experience during the GBS program as well as after the program. Please also take a moment to learn more about the Class of 2022, who just started their journey at Yale a few weeks ago.

We hope that you decide to apply to join the GBS Class of 2023. You can find a full breakdown of the required application materials on the Yale SOM website, along with the application timelines for Rounds 1, 2, and 3.

We are excited to learn more about you through your application. The application includes three short essays this year. These essays give the admissions committee a way to hear more about what is important to you, your career path, and how the GBS program fits into your goals. We hope this reflection and forethought will help you paint a picture that allows the committee to better understand your story and ambitions.

Those interested in applying to the GBS program this year should be aware of changes in our application requirements, including the standardized test score requirement. The GBS program now requires a GMAT or GRE score as part of the application. Keep in mind that is no minimum score needed to apply, and that the test score is only one part of the evaluation of your application.

Another feature new to the GBS program, announced a few months ago, is the Management Science Concentration. In a recent blog post, we explained more about this concentration and how it fits into the GBS curriculum. The concentration has a STEM designation, which allows graduates to qualify for an additional two-year STEM extension on their Post-Completion OPT (Optional Practical Training) work permission.
