As a trader, it’s my job to assess the market, as well as the macroeconomic environment, and execute trades based on the direction I believe the market is moving. Lately, a number of external factors have made this process much more complicated. The coursework at Yale SOM helps you unpack the market and the factors shaping it. The game theory, modeling exercises, and decision-tree work we’ve done in class has been helpful to me in addressing this complexity.
The EMBA admissions team’s personalized approach drew me to Yale SOM. It felt like they were interested in getting to know me, as well as the experiences that made me the woman I am. When I visited campus, and sat in on a class, I realized that the classroom dynamics and interactions in this program are all about creating meaningful discourse among professionals from a wide range of industries and perspectives.
I want to be a leader who, without words but through actions, exerts an energy that motivates others to become the best version of themselves every day. The Yale SOM community really fosters this spirit.
I live a purpose-driven life. Everything I do is a piece of the journey God has me on. I served in the U.S. Army before coming to Goldman Sachs. The Army helped prepare me for my career in finance, and Yale SOM is now teaching me how to better navigate it.
The work/life balance you need in a program like this comes naturally when you’re a part of something that you’re truly passionate about. Yale SOM is full of passionate people on their own journeys.
