Across all sectors, today’s global leaders must be outstanding managers. They must understand how competition works, how organizations function, and what makes leaders effective. They must have a firm grasp on major global risks and trends, thrive in cross-cultural environments, and know how to make meaningful connections across knowledge domains to craft innovative, entrepreneurial solutions to vexing problems. The MAM curriculum is built to enable students to nimbly meet these challenges of global leadership.

Our Curriculum

As an MAM student, you will participate in a required series of courses and discussions oriented around major trends in global business and the role of business leaders in today's society. You will also have the opportunity to curate your own intellectual journey at Yale University.

All MAM students are expected to participate fully in MAM required courses in the fall semester. MAM required courses bring together the diverse cohort for regular opportunities for exchange and learning. All MAM students are also expected to build a customized selection of elective courses that meet their personal interests and professional goals. The majority of the MAM student’s course of study is self-designed through this selection of electives from across both Yale SOM and Yale University.

MAM Required Courses

There are two interconnected components that serve as the foundation of the MAM required curriculum: Global Leadership: Topics in Advanced Management for Business & Society and Global Leadership: Personal and Interpersonal Effectiveness.

Yale Electives Courses

The Electives portion of the MAM curriculum provides you with the opportunity to curate your own intellectual journey at Yale, allowing you to build upon your already strong knowledge of business fundamentals and giving them a distinct leadership advantage. 

Students who pursue the Management Science Major will have the opportunity to qualify for the 24-month STEM Optional Practical Training extension.
