Yale SOM Welcomes Master of Advanced Management Class of 2021

Among the 65 members of the MAM Class of 2021 are consultants, finance professionals, information technology experts, engineers, supply chain managers, and many others.

They are consultants, finance professionals, information technology experts, engineers, and supply chain managers—and those are just a few of the many and varied professions among the 65 members of the Yale School of Management’s Master of Advanced Management Class of 2021.

A majority of the incoming class began classes on August 31, alongside students in Yale SOM’s other full-time residential programs; others will begin their coursework in January. The flexible schedule was created to allow the global cohort of students to pursue their education despite the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic.

MAM students spend a year at Yale SOM after completing or while completing an MBA at a member school in the Global Network for Advanced Management. This year’s class includes alumni of 20 of the schools. Twenty-five citizenships are represented, and 39% of the students are women. The students’ average age is 32.

Members of the class speak 35 languages, and 41% have worked in more than one country.

The Class of 2021 embraces a range of interests and avocations. One student is a music conductor with a spot in her country’s national concert hall of fame; one is a physician trained in neurology. One student is a black belt martial arts instructor who has also worked at SpaceX, while another is a Chinese citizen who completed his MBA at the University of Ghana.

During the one-year program at Yale SOM, MAM students have the opportunity to curate their own curricula, with the majority of their coursework chosen from electives across the university. Required classes include a close investigation of pressing global issues affecting business and society today, with speakers from different disciplines providing specialized lectures for students.
