The Yale School of Management embraces diversity. We believe that effective leaders are those that understand and benefit from the perspectives of people with different backgrounds, and that a commitment to building a diverse community is a key element of our mission of educating leaders for business and society.
We partner closely with a number of organizations seeking to increase diversity in business school enrollment and in the business community.

Yale SOM participates in admissions events with partner organizations such as the Forté Foundation, the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), and the Riordan Programs. We also host the annual SOM Communities, which provide prospective students with an opportunity to experience our diverse, supportive community first-hand. The day includes special presentations, interactions with faculty, and several opportunities for one-on-one conversations with Yale MBA students.
The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management
Yale School of Management has been a member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a national not-for-profit organization that supports diversity and inclusion in American business, since 2008. The mission of the Consortium is to enhance diversity in business education and leadership by helping to reduce the serious underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans in both member schools’ enrollment and the ranks of management.
In addition to the Consortium, Yale SOM partners with a number of organizations that provide financial support to diverse MBA candidates, including the Robert Toigo Foundation, the Forté Foundation, and Prospanica.
