Why did you choose to attend Yale SOM?

Yale SOM allows me the opportunity to go beyond the usual confines of graduate business education. I am able to make my own Yale by creating a schedule that fits me by including classes at the Law School, Yale College, American Studies and Global Affairs departments. This allows me to expand my network while learning from a world-class cohort to come out as a better person. All of this is underscored by a very welcoming climate for me and my family within a noncompetitive, globally focused, and very diverse environment.
