More Yalies Taking Courses at Yale SOM

The Yale School of Management is getting more popular with other Yalies campus-wide.

The Yale Daily News recently reported that Yale SOM will continue efforts to welcome the growing number of students from across the university to its classes: 

The School of Management is getting more popular, specifically with other Yalies. In the coming year, the ascendant business school plans to continue its efforts to open and advertise its courses to students from the University at large — continuing a trend established over the past five years. Since the 2010–11 academic year, the number of joint degree applicants to the SOM already enrolled in another Yale program has increased from 34 to 51. Meanwhile, the number of applicants from students and graduates of other Yale schools has increased from 40 to 54.

But the biggest increase has come in the number of non-SOM students enrolled in SOM courses — while there were 503 in the 2010–11 year, there are now1,029. SOM Dean Edward Snyder described the figures as encouraging because they reveal that the SOM is becoming a more central resource for all kinds of Yale students.
