With an MBA program that started only 17 years ago, Yale SOM has been making great strides. SOM opened a new $243M building two years ago, Indra Nooyi gave a generous donation last month and applications are up almost 30% this year. While there are many different ranking systems, Yale is ranked higher on most of them today than it was 5-10 years ago. The Yale you may think you know is changing, and it is getting increasingly more difficult to get accepted. Is this a good thing? It depends who you talk to.

Some MBA students feel that the school is quickly moving away from what it used to stand for. Class size has expanded, students are increasingly going into attractive for-profit ventures vs. the traditional SOM non-profit route, and the school is becoming more international. While some students and graduates miss the days of the past, many are excited about the future. Yale always had great international offerings, but they are growing and becoming more popular. SOM is a founding member of the Global Network for Advanced Management, along with The London School of Economics, HEC Paris, IE Business School, NUS – National University of Singapore, Renmin, Fudan and HKUST. Beyond the traditional MBA offering, Yale now offers a Master of Advanced Management (MAM), a one-year program focused on management. SOM also offers an Executive MBA for seasoned professionals as well as the Silver Scholars Program for those who know they want to start their MBA path directly after finishing undergraduate.

While the Class of 2018 stats have not come out yet since the application cycle is still in progress, SOM saw a median GMAT rise to 720 for the class of 2017. The median undergraduate GPA was 3.63 and students hailed from 47 countries outside the US.

If you are interested in applying to SOM, you still have time to apply in round three (R3 Deadline: April 21, 2016), although there will be more spots available if you wait until round one this fall. Contact Personal MBA Coach if you are considering applying to Yale SOM or any other programs and would like to learn tips for preparing strong applications.

Yale's jump in rankings this year is unreal ... Do you have an idea on why the number of applications skyrocketed this year?

Yale has been becoming more and more popular each year. The curriculum redesign years ago sparked interest among a number of applicants. They increased the class size and have been attracting a number of top employers. Many applicants see the chance of landing a top consulting or banking job (among others) from Yale SOM just like they could from other top schools, so interest has been growing.

Good luck with your applications!

Best,
Scott

Thanks for the explanation, Scott. Do you predict that Yale is going to keep the momentum and challenge the current top ranked schools? It's kind of a feedback loop for the ranking vs quality of candidates, isn't it?
