We also believe we aretrue counselors who simply have moreinformation than most of the people we arecounseling. MBA Admissions Consultant |
  4. 4. • Yale SOM has a new, state-of-the-art building on the way. The funds are being raised (initially a concern, but not so much now that a $50 million naming gift from Ned Evans has bolstered the project), the plans are gorgeous, and it can safely be assumed that in a matter of years, Yale will go from one of the worst MBA facilities to one of the best, if not THE best.

  5. 5. • Yale SOM is young. Its a relatively new business school (and its small), so the alumni base is tiny, compared to MBA powers. That has been a problem for deans who try to raise money and build awareness, but its a problem that will naturally be abated as Yale SOM grads go out and do great things. The flip side of having a small alumni base is that virtually all of the 6,000 or so alumni of the program are still active in their careers and fall within just a few generations of Yale classes.

  6. 6. • SOM is at Yale. I know, duh. But never forget the value of a business school being in the warm embrace of a powerful university, especially in the age of interdisciplinary learning models. SOMs Yale address allows the business school to be aggressive with specialties and with the raw case method, because world class learning is available just down the block in every field. When you dont have to strain for multi-disciplinary learning models, the education flows more smoothly and people can be great at what they are great at. MBA Admissions Consultant |
  7. 7. • Ted Snyder. When Ted Snyder first left Chicago Booth and announced he was joining Yale, the prevailing opinion is that Yale had it made in the shade. But as with everything else in modern society, the backlash soon kicked in and op-eds in the Wall Street Journal and other publications started to question whether the Ted Snyder magic will work again. Our opinion? Yes, it will. MBA Admissions Consultant |
  8. 8. • All told, Yale is a school to really watch - a blue chip stock. Its great now, for the experience, especially if you want a smaller class size, great career services, strength in health care, the rigor of the raw case method, and top notch finance. But its going to be even better as a value play for down the road, when your degree keeps soaring up the rankings. When you start planning your MBA search for this fall, be sure to give Yale SOM its due. MBA Admissions Consultant |
