What is your favorite class at Yale SOM? Briefly describe why.
MGT 526 - Market Failures and Economic Policy in Developing Countries. Dr. Kevin Donovan is brilliant, both as a person and as an instructor (and as a karaoke singer, allegedly). To me, this class is very personal, as I come to SOM from a developing country, in which I have worked with multiple government authorities to tackle market failures pertaining to the capital markets. Taking this class, I was able to expand my knowledge to other industries such as energy, healthcare and agriculture and market failures pertaining to them. We had a pleasure talking to guest speakers who founded and worked in enterprises across Africa, Asia, and Latin America with the primary goal of addressing market failures unique to each region. Most importantly, MGT-526 taught me how to develop an objective critique of economic problems of developing countries and come up with overarching solution (and policy) framework. I very much look forward to resorting to the material I learned in this class as I progress into my long-term career goal of economic development.
