Yale School of Management

Exclusive! The Yale School of Management is looking for students who will become leaders – not only in business, but in public institutions and in society as well. Do you fit that profile? Read the archived 4-page transcript of our admissions interview with Yale School of Management here!


Yale’s philosophy is all about educating leaders for business and society, and you will find that concept embodied in its integrated MBA curriculum and ethics-driven model of leadership development. For example, during the first-year orientation, students are introduced to the concept of values-driven leadership through the Leadership Development Program.

At Yale, you will be surrounded by people striving to become change agents. You are likely to appreciate being in an environment that doesn’t just prepare students for personal success, but also for the kind of success that makes a positive impact on society. The school teaches that generating wealth and improving society are not mutually exclusive, and that in fact, these things go hand in hand.

Yale’s Integrated Curriculum replaces traditional disciplines, such as finance, accounting, and marketing, with courses based on the constituencies a manager must engage and lead to maximize value within an organization.

The school implemented this curriculum to prepare students for today’s business careers, which tend to be more fluid and dynamic. When it comes to applying, the admissions office advises you to be yourself and authenticity is key. Your well-written personal statement will play a big role in how well you capture the attention of the admissions office.
