This review is for Yale

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2016

Experience during the program

The Yale SOM experience is an all-including experience. You join the SOM community from the first day you set foot on-campus, and immediately you are immersed with your fellow students, the faculty members, and staff. As anything you do, the experience is dependent on how much effort you put into it -- and you'll see that Yale SOM students put their hearts and souls into the school and into the community. I am always amazed at how much everyone cares for each other, helps other students through interview processes, and genuinely cares about each other. My friends (from other business schools and non bschool students) all comment at how "nice" and "grounded" Yale SOM students are and how much they differ from the stereotype of business school in general. I am proud of that. Yale SOM is a special place, and the people make it so.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Faculty is a huge aspect of my SOM experience. They know your names, your background, your interests. They encourage students to take courses regardless of your experience -- they take the time to make sure you're learning what you WANT to learn, what you're interested in ... and give you the opportunity to shape your business experience. And they get to know you outside of class through barbecues at their houses, workouts at the gym, and hanging out at SOM. I think one aspect of what makes SOM special is that everyone realizes each person in Evans Hall and across the Yale campus is a person -- each person has a story to bring and many layers of personality and interests. Together we make up the Yale community and we all want to contribute to that.

About job placement process

The alumni network is amazing. Use it to the best of your advantage during your recruiting process. SOM alums will drop anything to help you.
