The Yale SOM experience is oriented around community: both the community of fellow students and faculty that you'll engage with every day and the broader community—Yale, New Haven, global—with which we are all connected.

At Yale, you'll find an abundance of resources and opportunities to help you shape a life of meaning. Our degree programs will push you academically, in order to sharpen your thinking and approach to management questions. Our culture encourages entrepreneurism, and students regularly start new initiatives, lead major events, and find new ways to make a difference to those around them—advancing their leadership capabilities in the process. Our connections through Yale University and the Global Network for Advanced Management bring endless possibilities within your reach.

“It’s a part of the MBA experience not only to build relationships with our peers, but also to be a part of New Haven,” says Ray Pottebaum ’22, one of half a dozen Yale SOM students who volunteer with Bradley Street Bike Co-op.
