This review is for Yale
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2016
I would recommend this program - it does a lot to set itself apart from the traditional B-school experience. There's a very strong international focus, both in terms of the student body and in the curriculum. The non-traditional reputation of SOM helps both students and faculty push the envelope in terms of what an "appropriate" business school curriculum should look like, and the overwhelming alignment of students towards "business and society" helps to broaden the discussion beyond consulting and banking.
I came in with a non-traditional background and transitioned into a non-traditional field, so my view on the experience is somewhat different. I didn't find a great deal of support from the career office, and I conducted my internship/job search more or less independently of school resources. However, the Yale brand (and increasingly the SOM brand) were very helpful in opening doors, and I was ultimately able to get my #1 choice!
