MBA Class Of 2023: Yale SOM Apps Up 12% & GMAT Jumps 6 Points

Yale School of Management’s MBA program cracks the top five in the world

There wasn’t a great deal of change in the demographic makeup of Yale’s MBA classes between 2020 and 2021. Notable is that average work experience declined for a second year, to 4.4 years, which is low compared to peer schools. Average age stayed the same at 27. Students with a consulting background jumped to 24% of the class from 19%, and students in finance correspondingly declined to 17% from 23%. Nonprofit saw a noteworthy increase to 14% from 11%.

This Yale class is more than just numbers, Bruce DelMonico writes:

“The Class of 2023 is athletic, with the majority of students participating in some sport, including road biking (one student biked from Vietnam to Cambodia for a charity fundraiser), soccer, swimming, skiing, tennis (lawn, table, and otherwise), hiking, basketball, Muay Thai, weight training (including an Olympic weightlifting trainee), go-kart racing, surfing, snowboarding, fishing, running (including the Athens, Boston, Tata Mumbai, Dallas, Berlin, and New York City marathons), aerial dance, yoga, alpine ski racing, mountain climbing, trail running, field hockey, hiking fourteeners (mountains with at least 14,000 feet of elevation), ultra-running, badminton, golf, karate, ballet, rowing, sailing, CrossFit, squash, frisbee, kayaking, volleyball, boxing, scuba diving, triathlons, bouldering, synchronized swimming, fencing, dancing (bachata, ballroom, Bollywood, hip-hop, Garba/Raas, Bhangra, salsa), figure skating, lacrosse, mountain biking, and cheerleading.

“Roughly three-quarters of the class speaks two or more languages, and more than 30% speaks three or more, including Arabic, French, Mandarin, Hindi, Urdu, Gujarati, Yoruba, Twi, Ga, Azerbaijani, Turkish, Russian, Spanish, Bengali, German, Italian, Hebrew, Portuguese, Greek, Japanese, Hakka, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Chichewa, Bulgarian, Amharic, Javanese, Swahili, Tigrinya, Korean, Dutch, American Sign Language, Punjabi, Sindhi, Indonesian, Mohawk, Polish, Farsi, Haitian Creole, Tamil, Belarusian, Persian, Malayalam, and Shanghainese. They’ve traveled widely, with one student having visited 83 countries.”
