Yale School of Management

Yale, Foster + Partners

The Yale School of Management (SOM) is located near the center of Yale University’s campus in New Haven, Connecticut. One of the smaller leading MBA programs in terms of class size, hallmarks of Yale SOM include its close-knit student body and its multidisciplinary approach to business education. In addition, students at the school benefit from a high degree of integration with Yale University as a whole and have the ability to take elective courses across the university. Yale SOM’s MBA program is known for its high placement of graduates into jobs in the nonprofit sector and its finance focus.
