Why did you choose to attend Yale SOM?

I chose Yale SOM for two main reasons: 1) The mission-driven purpose of the school. The curriculum and core classes are designed to open perspectives on the multi-dimensionality of different societies - including business, governance, social impact, innovation, etc. It has been a thought-provoking experience to hear my classmates' views on these different frameworks. 2) The community. The nurturing friendships I made here at SOM helped me to grow academically and spiritually. We are respectful of each other's differences and at the same time drawn to learning about them in creating a more understanding and inclusive environment.
