Application Guide

Thank you for taking the first step to join the Yale SOM community.

Applying to MBA programs can be a daunting process. There are lots of tasks to prioritize, manage, and complete, and sometimes it can feel overwhelming trying to keep track of it all. Our hope is that this Application Guide will provide some useful insights into the process and help make it a little easier to apply to Yale SOM.

Note: Yale SOM Admissions has added an additional “Round 3 Extended” deadline of May 27, for those candidates who are unable to submit their application by the standard Round 3 deadline of April 14, or whose applications are not complete by that date, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the announcement.
