True Commitment to Individual and Collective Growth

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED [?]

This review is for Yale

Program Yale Executive MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

I came into the EMBA with about 10 years of experience in Marketing and a Director role. The program is very high quality, with a lot of attention on the students.
The reason I chose the school was that it was an actual MBA, with the same classes, faculty and class hours as the full-time MBA. I also chose Yale SOM because the curriculum has a great mix of academic classes and more practical workshop-style classes, which makes it easy to bring the learning back to the office on Monday after class.
The school has a unique perspective and philosophy of business and leadership, that they infuse in the teaching and community - and that's very encouraging for those who aspire to lead effectively and make a difference through their business ventures.
The class is a very cohesive group of well-rounded professionals, all senior in their fields, and extremely supportive of each other's growth. The admission team does an excellent job keeping the program relatively small, and being very selective, by making sure they only admit people who will do something great with their MBA. After a year in the class, it really feels like everybody has been growing individually, but also that we have grown as a group.
All in all, it is an excellent program for professionals looking to broaden their understanding of business and gain a more holistic understanding of leadership. Get ready to work very hard though, as the classes are extremely demanding.
