Application for admission to the Doctoral Program in Management is made through the Yale Graduate School. The application deadline is December 15 of the year in which admission is sought.
Applications are considered only once per year, and all new students begin their doctoral studies in the fall term. Classes are not offered on evenings or weekends, nor is it possible to be a student in the program while holding a full-time job. Applicants are required to take either the GRE or GMAT test. You will find a full description of the application process on the Graduate Admissions Web Page.

Principles on Holistic Admission and Spring 2020 Grades
Recognizing the challenges to teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Provost and Deans of Yale University adopted the following principle:
Yale’s admissions offices for graduate and professional schools evaluate applicants holistically and will take the significant disruptions of COVID-19 into account when reviewing students’ transcripts and other admissions materials relating to Spring 2020. In particular, we will respect decisions regarding the adoption of Credit/Fail and other grading options during this unprecedented period, whether they are made by institutions or by individual students.
All students admitted to the program are given full financial aid for five years as long as they continue to satisfy the program's academic requirements. The aid consists of a tuition waiver and a stipend that is comparable to stipends offered by other leading schools of management.
Before submitting your query, please consult the Doctoral Program Admissions Frequently Asked Questions.
