The relationships you build at Yale will broaden your professional network. The interaction among diverse and accomplished executive students, access to the Yale community, and our network of alumni leaders in every industry, are invaluable benefits as you develop your career. Through the Yale MBA for Executives program, you will also meet top leaders from outside Yale, including distinguished visiting scholars and lecturers.
The interaction among diverse and accomplished executive MBA students is central to our program. We carefully select candidates who will bring varied viewpoints to maximize the quality of classroom discussion and the small learning groups and team assignments experience. In this environment of rigorous discussion and exchange, you will build a close network of fellow leaders, who will also contribute to your success in the years ahead.
