Why did you choose to attend Yale SOM?
From the moment I set foot on campus, I was struck by the strong sense of community and the diverse and talented group of students and faculty. As someone who is passionate about making a positive impact on society, I was drawn to Yale SOM's mission of training leaders who not only excel in business but who also prioritize ethical and social responsibility. What has truly stood out to me during my time here is the unparalleled level of support and mentorship that is available to students. The faculty and second years are incredibly invested in our success and go above and beyond to provide us with the resources and opportunities we need to achieve our goals. From personalized career coaching to dynamic alumni networking events and engaging extracurricular activities, Yale SOM has offered me an abundance of opportunities to develop and grow as a leader.
