The joint-degree program offers an MBA in combination with a master of public policy degree in global affairs. It is intended for students who plan global careers in the for-profit, government, or nonprofit sectors.
In the MBA/MPP in Global Affairs joint-degree program, students spend the first year at the Jackson School of Global Affairs and the second year at Yale SOM, during which they take the integrated MBA curriculum. During the third year, they take electives at SOM and elsewhere at Yale.
Joint-degree applicants must apply to and be admitted to both programs independently. Applicants may apply to both programs simultaneously, apply to the global affairs program during their first year at Yale SOM, or apply to Yale SOM during their first year in the global affairs program.
