Internship: MBA Venture Intern, Equal Ventures; Perennial Fund Summer Associate, MAD Agriculture
Yale SOM’s mission-driven approach to management and close relationship with the rest of the Yale community attracted me from the start. I wanted an MBA program with a rich tradition of graduates who were interested in more than just making money.
The variety of courses is incredible, but what I find even more unique is the interdisciplinary approach... It helps situate our knowledge within a real-world context, and that’s important, given the multidimensional nature of the challenges we’re all going to face as business leaders.
Global Director, Material Management and SIOP, SPX Flow
I’ve already been able to apply tools and concepts from both our Probability Modeling and Statistics course and our Modeling Managerial Decisions course in solving day-to-day problems in inventory strategy and demand planning.
Everyone here is looking to make meaningful connections and build out their networks. Our cohorts and learning teams really help us do it. Teamwork projects introduce you to the people you can turn to for help and support in the future.
Through Yale SOM’s core curriculum, I gained a more holistic approach to problem-solving that took into account different perspectives and levers of change, as well as creative applications and arguments based on numbers and data.
Founder, NaviWell; Consultant, The Chartis Group (starting January 2021)
This school’s emphasis on serving ‘business and society’ really attracts a unique student body. My time here has helped me understand what real ‘fit’ feels like and how to seek it in future communities.
Internship: Supply Chain Management, Retail Leadership Development Program, Amazon
The Yale SOM curriculum emphasizes broad business acumen and frameworks for navigating these complex environments. Because we’re exposed to so much, I’ve become much more comfortable discussing business challenges and possible solutions in a wide range of industries and across functions.
The MBA for Executives program is for people who are intellectually curious and ready to take the next step in their personal and professional development. It’s for people who want to both lead and learn and who are passionate about making an impact.
I was attracted to Yale SOM’s mission and its commitment to educate leaders for business and society. Once I got here, it was easy to see how that mission is lived and breathed in the curriculum, clubs, and culture of the school.
Internship: MBA Associate, Strategy and Business Development, Disney Theatrical Group
Teamwork has been a big part of my time at Yale SOM, and it’s been incredibly enriching. I’ve learned tools and frameworks to think through business problems from new angles and in a more methodical fashion.
Physician, Yale New Haven Health – Bridgeport Hospital
It’s often unsettling for a physician to not have answers, such as when faced with a novel medical challenge that we are all still learning about. I relied on tools learned from the Executive Toolkit elective course—the importance of maintaining honesty and transparency while communicating my dedication as a provider.
You feel Yale SOM’s mission of educating leaders for business and society in every area of campus life. The impacts of business decisions on society are part of our classroom discussions. And there are entire courses, like State and Society, that are really based on the mission, and we look at impacts on a larger scale.
The EMBA program is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn with and from the best, to be among a community of leaders with diverse experiences, and to create a network of connections that lasts forever.
Investments and acquisitions, Jonathan Rose Companies
At Yale, the law school offers me some of the same ways of thinking about the world that the humanities did, while my MBA program is sharpening my quantitative edge. I didn’t want to do one of these degree without the other. I’ll have a legal background, but a business school education prepares you to lead organizations in ways that no other education can.
The GBS curriculum offers us a lot of liberty, while also making sure we build close relationships within our cohort. Having two mandatory core courses at the beginning of the fall semester was a great way to form bonds with our classmates.
Before the core curriculum, I saw issues through a pretty narrow lens. I missed the connections between one group of stakeholders and another. Now I’ve developed a much more nuanced understanding of how systems and groups of people work together.
