Tiago Santos Cruz ’17

Master of Advanced Management

“Johnson & Johnson is the first time in my life that a company is looking at me and saying, “We think you’re a future leader.” Getting the offer was a validation of all the effort I had made during the MBA and the MAM, especially because at Yale I focused on diving deeper into leadership.”

Mark Lavoie ’18

MBA

“One of the biggest surprises to me at Yale SOM has been the degree of openness and engagement I have with my classmates. Having come from a business background, I thought an MBA would be a good way for me to crank up the dial on my skill set, but now I would say that the biggest benefit has been that I’ve gotten to know people from 50 different countries and 100 different cities who are incredible people, incredible professionals, and great friends.”

MBA

“I think Yale SOM’s greatest strength is that it’s truly a global business school. I don’t feel like I’m only receiving an education in the U.S., because I get so many opportunities to work with students from business schools around the world though the Global Network for Advanced Management.”

CK Chu ’17

Master of Advanced Management

“I took a lot of courses which shaped my mind and the way I think, like Corporate Responsibility, Global Leadership, and Market Strategy. They made me realize that today’s global leaders should think past the business strategy. They should grasp global risks and trends, and strive for a cross-cultural environment.”

Master of Advanced Management

“Everyone knows the academics at Yale are great—and that’s why I applied, and I love it—but I didn’t expect this other half, of activities and networking. I didn’t know there would be all these incredible guest speakers from companies all over the U.S.”

Philippa Smit ’17

Master of Advanced Management

“When I learned about the MAM, about what Yale stood for and what the School of Management stood for—“business and society”—it stood out that this was something different. This was a way that I could get an education—a global education—that could have an impact at a local and a national and a global level.”
