Yale School of Management

Student Clubs & Groups

Our student clubs are an integral part of the Yale SOM community. Clubs provide forums for discussion and opportunities for action, and they foster students' leadership and business skills.

*Clubs vary in their mission and focus. GBS students can join all clubs listed immediately below in the Student Clubs and Groups  section and can participate in select events hosted by the professional clubs;  however, given the professional clubs’ primary focus on MBA-level recruiting, formal membership in these clubs is restricted to MBA and MAM students.
