Yale School of Management


Today’s marketing leaders are expected to utilize a deep understanding of the customer to influence decision making across many different functions, from demand planning and supply chain management to pricing and analytics.  

The Yale SOM integrated core curriculum provides students with both a strong foundation in marketing and brand management frameworks, as well as tools and methods for applying those concepts to complex, integrated problems. Specialized marketing electives and team-based projects provide you with the expertise you need to pursue your passion, whether it’s decision making, big data, or sustainability.
