Why did you choose to attend Yale SOM?
For me, SOM was peerless in its leadership in social impact and nonprofit management, integration with the broader Yale community, and commitment to an equitable and sustainable economy. I wanted to learn from a school that weighs the ethics and ongoing effectiveness of established management practices, encouraging students to debate alternatives. SOM embraces the idea that leadership is not a static or self-contained practice. The intellectual life at Yale infuses SOM with broad-mindedness and creative thinking, which complements more traditional tools and frameworks.
