As we start a new academic year, Dean Snyder will update you on the "State of Yale SOM." He also will discuss our increased focus on developing students' team building skills. Dean Snyder will share some provisional ideas for strengthening this capability through more project work, curricularly and extracurricularly, which leverages Yale SOM's diversity, integration with Yale University, and the Global Network for Advanced Management. Q&A will follow.
Edward A. Snyder, Dean & William S. Beinecke Professor of Economics and Management Edward A. Snyder is Dean and William S. Beinecke Professor of Economics and Management at the Yale School of Management. As Dean, he has overall responsibility for the school's academic programs, for enhancing its reputation, and for strengthening its finances. The school's objectives are: (i) to be the business school that is most involved with its home university: eminent and purposeful Yale; (ii) to be the most global U.S. business school in ways that are differentiating and meaningful, given how the world's economy has developed; and (iii) to be recognized as the best source of elevated leaders for all sectors and regions. During his tenure at Yale, the school has (i) developed the first global network of top business schools, (ii) introduced its Master of Advanced Management degree for graduates of the Global Network for Advanced Management, (iii) implemented a new, required Leadership Development Program for all Master's students, and (iv) forged yet stronger programmatic relationships with other Yale professional schools.
