How we help you get there

When you join SOM, you join a rich network of more than 10,000 alumni whose careers span multiple industries and functions. You also become a member of the broader Yale University network, giving you access to the wealth of connections and resources the Ivy League institution offers.

The Consulting Club, Finance Club, and other professional clubs help prepare you for interviews through boot camps, practice interviews, and more. They also convene industry leaders throughout the year for informal talks designed to help you gain a fuller picture of your chosen career path.

Summer internships

From tech to nonprofit, finance industry to startup, the summer internship positions SOM students take are as diverse as the students themselves. They provide valuable time to try out an industry and function, to make connections, to stretch yourself, and to apply what you’ve learned in your first year.
