I came to Yale SOM to learn to think more broadly and critically about key issues facing the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, and also about our impact and importance to society. I hope to be one of the few industry leaders who’s able to integrate scientific and business skills with the rigor necessary to help advance our profession.
From the first time I set foot in Evans Hall, I knew Yale was the only place I wanted to attend. I was so impressed by the professors and the students, and the culture. It’s an extremely special and supportive place, and I’m humbled and honored to be a part of it.

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.
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.
I want to be the kind of leader who inspires others to focus on initiatives that do good and that give back to society. I also want to inspire my fellow leaders, in business and in society, to utilize empathy when making decisions that will impact people’s lives.
All of my courses have been interesting and engaging, and a surprising amount of the content has already been put to use in my professional role. From the teamwork lessons in Managing Groups & Teams and the quantitative analysis in Probability and Statistics, Modeling Managerial Decisions, and Competitor, I’ve learned new ways of approaching problem-solving.

I co-founded a sustainability-focused asset management firm in 2016. I needed an executive MBA program where I could learn everything new that was happening in the space of asset management and sustainability, and Yale is very clearly in the forefront.
The integrated core curriculum is great because it’s how business actually functions. You may be in the marketing department, but you care about sales. You care about research. You care about engineering. It’s the same with every other department. The fact that Yale SOM aligns its curriculum with the way that things are done in the real world is incredibly valuable.
Current Position: Senior Director, Strategy and Insights, Rémy Cointreau
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.

There’s a big role for sustainability in manufacturing, and Yale’s sustainability track offered me the best option for an education in this growing field. Eventually, I envision being in a position where I can help determine how we best utilize resources at my company’s different sites.
