Yale School of Management


At Yale SOM, we are motivated by the school’s mission to educate leaders for business and society. The community is united by the belief that acting on our mission requires us to address the biggest and most pressing challenges in the world today. Such problems can’t be solved through solitary gestures—it takes teamwork, an ability to leverage human capital, and the building of active connections between people, ideas, and resources.

A Community Tradition

Each year, the Yale SOM community comes together with a singular purpose—to help students interested in the nonprofit and government sectors to pursue their ambitions. The student-run Internship Fund raises funds to support students taking lower-paying internships in these fields. The annual IF Auction and related events are also a highlight of the social calendar.
