This review is for Yale

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

Yale SOM has got a great program - being a first year student we've just started our second semester during which we get to choose our first electives, whereas a majority of the classes are still part of the mandatory core. 2-3 months into the program the core classes really begin to connect with one another and one actually gets to understand what the "integrated curriculum" means and how great an experience it is.
The student body is probably the most diverse one could find at any top tier US b-school in that bankers and consultants do not make up the majority of a classroom. We've got peers from all around the globe who've worked in all sorts of positions, functions, and companies. This is great to learn from one another and to seek advice if one has got diverse interests or non-traditional career ambitions. Not so great when one wants to learn superior presentation skills from an ex-consultant and doesn't have one in the learning team.
