Personal MBA Coach just sat down virtually with Laurel Grodman to get an insider’s look at the Yale SOM admissions process. As the Managing Director of Admissions and a Yale SOM graduate herself, Laurel is intimately familiar with the Yale SOM MBA Program.

If you are wondering whether you are the “perfect fit” for Yale SOM, do not worry! Watch as Laurel deconstructs this notion, stressing that the school is simply looking for people who are academically prepared to be in a rigorous program, have demonstrated impact in their professional lives, and will be great community members at Yale SOM.
Rather than pretending to be someone you are not, you should take your time with the process to represent yourself and what you are interested in as well as possible.
From new partnerships and programs, to the behavioral assessment, to Covid-19’s impact on the admissions process, you do not want to miss this invaluable insider perspective.
Plus, find out more about new programs at Yale SOM including the MMS in Asset Management (launching in the fall of 2021) and the opportunities this offering creates for MBA candidates.
Are you interested in learning more about the Yale SOM experience? As mentioned in the interview, Yale SOM’s Student Ambassadors serve as contacts for numerous clubs, programs, and interest groups. While student ambassadors are not part of the admissions committee, and thus these exchanges are not evaluative, these contacts are a great way for prospective students to ask specific and candid questions.
