Why did you choose to attend Yale SOM?

I was initially drawn to the school's mission to educate leaders for business & society. I wanted to be part of a student body that valued corporate social responsiblity and recognized the importance of responsible business practices. I was also intrigued by the possibilities of the integrated curriculum, especially given the fact that my undergrad was a business-oriented major. The final point that sold me on Yale SOM was the location. I wanted to be part of an MBA program where the rest of the students prioritized forming a tight-knit community, but where I could also be close to both New York City and Boston. They are both only a train ride away!
