“At SOM, the rest of Yale comes to you. I’ve had classes where I sat alongside students from the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Yale School of Medicine, Yale School of Public Health, and others; this provides a cross-campus experience and different perspectives on how to approach different types of problems.”

“Yale SOM really stood out as a school that would have other students from very creative or design backgrounds who are interested in improving the world, whether that means working on refugee housing or on self-driving cars. It all seemed very possible at Yale.”

“What I learned through the leadership classes in the program is that leadership is about humility, listening to others, and empowering people around you to be the best they can be. And it is that way and only that way that you can be a great leader.”

“In the MAM, you can leverage all of what Yale University has to offer. One class might be lecture-oriented, while the next might be more analytical. Another might require you to participate more in discussions or work with a team. That was a good experience for me: Yale provided a safe space for me to work on my interpersonal dynamics.”

“I knew coming to Yale that the faculty and the courses would be world-class and that the knowledge learned in the classroom would be exactly what I signed up for. But what surprised me was how much I learned from my classmates, from each of their unique, real-world business situations.”
