Yale SOM 1st year experiences

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

This review is for Yale

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2019

Experience during the program

I enjoyed going through the core classes and learning about intro to corporate finance (its called Sourcing and Managing Funds). The instruction is also well thought out on average and is tailored to students to learn things from the very basics, which is important to thoroughly understand the material and how it can be applied in a professional work environment. My expectation was that SOM from my fellow students to the faculty to the career development office to help me with my job search and that has exceeded my expectations.

I would suggest to future applicants to think critically about what type of learning and work environment that they excel in. This is because the culture and environment of the school is one based on collaboration and not competition.
