At the beginning of the 2006-2007 academic year, the Yale School of Management launched a new first-year core curriculum to better match the education we give our students to the conditions that exist in the business world today.
Since managers today must frequently work across boundaries of function, organization, and industry, Yale's new curriculum teaches management in an integrated way, rather than in separate, single-discipline courses, such as Finance or Marketing.
It’s an exciting time to be at the school, as we remake management education to better train tomorrow’s leaders for business and society.
The Yale SOM MBA requires two years of full-time study in residence.
In the first year, students devote the majority of their time to the core curriculum. In the summer following the first year, students continue their management training through internships or other appropriate activities. In the second year, elective courses complete the requirements for the degree.
Within this basic framework, students find opportunities to explore subjects from International Finance to Supply Chain Management, and to take classes in other Yale schools, such as Yale Law School and the School of Architecture.
