Student Life

Students at SOM’s “close-knit community” are “collaborative, genuine, and incredibly smart.” “The difference between Yale and other b-schools is that we have a unique ethos amongst the students; one of social awareness, and generosity of spirit and camaraderie,” explains a Non-Profit Consulting student. “The flavor of the school…is very familial, con­genial, and fun-filled.” Because “it’s a relatively small school” most students find that “you become friends with just about everyone very quickly, which makes for a very tight com­munity.” “Yale SOM is heavily integrated with ‘greater Yale’ both academically and social­ly” and both New York City and Boston are fairly short trips away. “There’s a student club for just about any interest” although Yale’s demanding program combined “with too many exciting activities and opportunities to take advantage of” means that prioritizing can be “a difficult job.” “At any given hour of any given day there are multiple talks/lectures I’d die to attend, so opportunities are overwhelming,” one student explains.

Career

“The Career Development Office is a mixed bag” at Yale. “Career services is always avail­able to help, but because of the small size there are just fewer opportunities,” one student says. However, another declares that “the CDO staff is incredibly personable, has many individual meetings with students, and not only connects students with jobs, but acts as a sort of therapy for students trying to figure out their calling.” One “growing sector for Yale” is Technology “with people heading to Google, Apple, Amazon, Palantir, and others” in recent years. In 2012, the average mean base salary was over $104,000 and 89 percent of graduates had job offers by three months after graduation. Nearly one-fourth of students found work in Consulting and another fourth found work in Financial Services. Barclays, Boston Consulting Group, Bain & Company, Goldman Sachs, and Amazon.com were among the companies where SOM graduates landed.

The Princeton Review

Students Say

Yale is one of the world’s most respected universities, so it is no surprise that the “world­renowned” “brand of Yale” is a huge draw for students. The School of Management has Yale’s characteristic “academic rigor” coupled with a “low faculty to student ratio” and an “international focus.” SOM students can take advantage of the entirety of Yale University, taking “elective courses anywhere across the university - anything from bankruptcy at the law school to art or film studies.” Located in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale can also boast a close “proximity to NY and Boston.” “There was a unique combination of intelligence and humility at SOM that I didn’t find anywhere else,” one student says of their decision to attend. The SOM is “non-traditional” and puts “emphasis on educating leaders for both business AND society.” “The business world itself does not function in a vacuum, so it is important to understand how business fits in with the greater societal landscape,” elabo­rates one student. “The school is on an upward trajectory in terms of academic programming,” and the “administration is very productive, approachable, and helpful.” As one would expect at Yale, “the academic experience is unparalleled,” and the “professors are leaders in their fields.” Students take a “core curriculum” which engenders a close community and “a spir­it for learning and risk-taking.” However, the program is “flexible” and students are able to “dictate our curriculum.” “The professors are committed to partnering with students to make sure they learn the material,” although some say that “the University often puts up bureaucratic roadblocks.” Students at the SOM are “very diverse in their interests,” but “everyone understands that what they want to do.” “I felt I ‘found my people,’” an Environmental Non-Profit student says. “Smart, ambitious, mission-driven, inclusive, diverse, concerned with the world, who want to make a difference and appreciate that the principles of good leadership and man­agement transcend sectors.”
