- You're the head of a multinational firm preparing a takeover bid. How do you weigh financial value against political risk?
- You manage a sovereign wealth fund. How do your investment decisions affect the long-term welfare of your nation?
- As a business leader, how should you address severe societal inequities?
These questions don't have simple answers. To make the right decision, you need to understand all the stakeholders involved and their varied points of view, draw on your own creativity and a breadth of insights, and use a rigorous foundation of analysis and knowledge.
Yale SOM's MBA curriculum is designed to teach you the skills you will need to lead in these kinds of complex, fast-moving scenarios.
The Career Development Office creates the foundation for your professional development with a curriculum of workshops on elements of the career search process, such as résumé and cover letter writing, networking, off-campus job searches, interviewing skills, and negotiation strategy. Experienced CDO staff advise you in one-on-one sessions as you narrow your search, apply for positions, and prepare for interviews. The CDO also brings top hiring organizations to Yale for on-campus recruiting.

Integrated Management Perspectives
You've learned how to analyze data. You've learned about working in teams. You've learned what makes organizations thrive. You've learned about the big trends in the global marketplace. Now you need to put it all together. Integrated Management Perspectives uses a series of original Yale SOM "raw" cases to look at real organizational dilemmas and the complex challenges involved in leading a contemporary business.
Yale SOM students must complete a Global Studies Requirement. This could mean taking the International Experience course, through which students spend ten days in an overseas location important to understanding the global economy, a Global Network Week (a week-long mini-course hosted by one of the member schools in the Global Network for Advanced Management), an online Global Network Course (virtual courses in which students work with a global team to look at a cross-national business problem), or other approved electives that involve international travel and study.
To apply to the Yale School of Management, applicants must have a four-year bachelors degree from an accredited U.S. institution or the international equivalent and must have taken either the GMAT or the GRE. Applicants must also fill out the online application form (including an essay), provide transcripts from every college or university attended, submit two professional recommendations, complete the video questions, and pay the application fee.
All applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. No separate application is required. Merit scholarship recipients are notified at the same time that they are admitted.
In addition, many outside sources provide academic scholarships. Some employers may offer scholarship assistance, as do industry associations, foundations, fraternal organizations, clubs, athletic organizations, and ethnic associations.
The mission of the Yale School of management is educating leaders for business and society. The schools students, faculty, and alumni are committed to understanding the complex forces transforming global markets and using that understanding to build organizationsin the for-profit, nonprofit, entrepreneurial, and government sectorsthat contribute lasting value to society.
