I particularly like Yale's statement of the purpose of its revised curriculum-
"(The new currulum) is designed for students with the highest aims: leaders who will head up Fortune 50 companies, start businesses that change society, manage the worldâ€™s most important non-profits, and serve in the highest echelons of government."
new curriculum precludes concentrations? [#permalink]

From what i remember, Yale SOM offered many of the usual concentrations before the advent of the new curriculum. Now, I can't find any mention of a concentration whatsoever, though they do say student take electives in their 2nd year. Included is a link to the list of over a dozen subject areas they offer, but again, nothing about concentrations.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Does Yale now offer only a general management degree, with some flexibility to tailor the degree to one's interests?
Just in case anyone else was wondering about Yale's concentrations, I got in touch with a current Yale student. Here's what she had to say:
Yup, you're not missing anything on the website. They did get rid of official concentrations with the new curriculum. All the same electives are still offered, of course, but no more concentrations. Which I'm kind of happy about, because I honestly don't know what I would have picked (strategy, nonprofit mgmt, public mgmt...). This way I just get to just take the courses that I'm really interested in even if they cross old concentration boundaries...
Yale is not ranked nearly as high as a lot of other schools, but is it still a pretty solid value? Say I wanted to wind up in Ohio, would Yale be able to place me in a good position there? Of course, the name will carry, and it seems like they have a very good academic program. What about its management courses? Are they sufficient, above-average, or great?
Nothing can beat being able to network like living in NYC, but New Haven is a 1.5 hour drive from NYC and the smaller class size will allow you to stand out. From a cost of living standpoint, New Haven is a whole lot cheaper. Of course, I am bias as my avatar suggests.
