My begin our tour of the Elite Cluster with Yale SOM. The study of management has taken a somewhat unusual path at Yale. Yale started its program c.1976 offering the MPMM degree (a masters in private and public management). Yale stressed the management of both private and public organizations (Note: this is not as strange as it might seem since Chicago GSB was first called the College and Commerce and Politics in 1898 and many schools still include public and private management in the same College, School, or Department but usually with different degree tracks). Early attempts to make Yale's program more "conventional" were met with resistance and Yale is still known as a place that attracts "unconventional" MBA students.
Yale SOM presents some obvious advantages. Yale University is regarded as one of the best universities in the world and has what generally regarded as the finest law school in the United States. It also enjoys considerable placement success with major finance firms. For students who are interested in public management, NPM, or the social implications of business Yale should receive serious consideration.
There are also some disadvantages to contemplate. Yale SOM has few almuni compared to many of its Elite/UltraElite rivals. Unlike other relatively new entrants to the MBA field (such as Duke) the SOM took a long time trying to determine whether it should be a "business school" or something far broader. If you are not particularly interested in the more public-oriented forms of management, Yale strengths in these fields might not be too relevant to you.
The center of the distribution is quite typical for Elite schools in the 700/3.5 range.
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.
Yale is my target school but i dont have any community work-ex and not interested in the Public sector which yale strongly believes in....
Does Yale adcom look favourably on applicants like me??
Any inputs highly appreciated
PS: Main reason why i am interested in yale was the chance to learn some thing about LAW from the famous Yale Law School..I was always interested in the LAW(not as a full-time ) but some sort of cross Learning
In the second year at Yale, you can take as many as seven electives, which may be selected from the wide range of advanced-level course offerings at Yale SOM or from courses in other schools and departments at Yale University. One of the highest priorities at Yale SOM is to link closely with our parent institution, and students regularly enroll in courses at Yale Law School
If attending some law school classes is a major interest, note that many of the business schools in the top clusters allow students to take classes in their respective law schools. Yale is certainly a superlative law school but there are other top cluster law schools with strong business offerings as well.
top cluster law schools with strong business offerings as well
Thanks Hjort ......
Can you please let me know about such schools ...
I always believe good MBA program should have a strong focus on LAW apart from the other core-business courses...Increasingly Corporations have to deal with the rising powers of Regulatory Bodies and i strongly believe future CEO's are the one who can carry the Finance and LAW hand-in-hand
They appear to combine the highest subscores (Q and V) from different administrations of the test. However, I would confirm this with the SOM.
Hjort - is this true? I have e-mailed the Yale Admissions Office to confirm but I have never heard of a school taking the highest subscores from different administrations of the test. Are there any other schools that do this?
