The Yale School of Management Pre-MBA Leadership Program is a highly selective, two-week summer program aimed at college sophomores, juniors and seniors and recent college graduates from populations typically under-represented in management education. We introduce you to the fundamentals of management education and give you the tools necessary to hone your individual leadership skills.
This emphasis on leadership flows from the mission of the School of Management: to educate leaders for business and society. When you know how to inspire people, as well as manage capital, materials and ideas, you can become a more potent agent of change. After completing this program, you will return to your campus and your community with a (re)focused sense of purpose that can guide you for many years to come.
Whether or not you decide to pursue an MBA – at Yale or elsewhere – the Yale School of Management Pre-MBA Leadership Program will not only develop your practical knowledge of business and management, but also inspire you to develop and draw upon your leadership abilities in order to make a positive impact – in your personal and professional endeavors, and in the life of your community.
WHO? The Pre-MBA Leadership Program is tailored toward current college sophomores, juniors and seniors and recent college graduates from populations typically under-represented in management education and those from non-traditional pre-MBA academic tracks.
