Global Reach

Launch a career that spans boundaries

Our global reach means you will be able to study businesses operating in diverse cultural contexts, travel to new continents, and connect with peers from dozens of countries.

But what really makes a global leader is a mindset of open curiosity—eagerness to learn from every interaction, to appreciate differences, and to place experiences and lessons into the larger context of global challenges. Our programs will also give you a unique opportunity to develop this perspective.

“In every class and hallway, you meet people who are diverse in every respect. It constantly exposes you to different cultures and experiences. That’s how you create a global mindset.”

A Global Campus

You don't have to leave Yale SOM’s Edward P. Evans Hall to be part of a global community. More than 40% of our MBA student body is international, coming from more than 40 countries. Conferences, talks, and informal get-togethers give students opportunities to learn from other members of the community.
