At the Yale School of Management, an MBA is not only about “business.” Our mission is to educate leaders for business and society. What that means is that graduates of the Yale MBA program are expected to think about how their actions – at work or in their personal lives – can have societal impact.
In fact, we know that today the most significant and important business problems are not all about business: the turbulent financial markets and mortgage crises, globalization, climate change, healthcare, education, economic development – all of today’s critical concerns, whether it’s here in our own communities or in towns and cities around the world – require a new way of thinking, a new approach, a broader perspective on the ways in which market forces can be brought to bear, not just to create and sustain wealth, but also to address – and alleviate – some of the most vexing societal problems.
Yale’s dual focus on business and society creates leaders who fundamentally understand this synergy, leaders who are uniquely suited, not just for success, but for positive impact. A Yale School of Management MBA is about making a difference, and the Pre-MBA Leadership Program is designed to show you how MBAs are making a difference every day – and to inspire you to do the same.
