Talking Yale University-Yale School of Management - October 7th, 2008

Yale School of Management

Why Yale SOM?

The Yale integrated MBA curriculum has received a lot of attention around the globe-and appropriately so, given both the time and the energy people have put into making it worthy of that attention, as well as the appropriateness of the curriculum for our times. But I would hate it if anybody came here just because they thought, "This is the place to go because of the curriculum."

The curriculum is not an end. In fact, it is a place to begin. The curriculum is the means, and the end is the leaders that this school is helping to develop.

When I get asked what's distinctive about Yale graduates-and I get asked that about four times a day-I talk about what I see as a distinctive model of leadership. Our vision is that a graduate of this institution is an inspiring, broadly engaged, values-based leader who owns and solves hard problems that matter.

Each piece of that statement is important. Some leaders may motivate through fear or extrinsic incentives. We want to motivate through inspiration. And that means that our graduates have to have a personal vision and a passion and a conviction about what they're doing that others experience as inspiring. "Broadly engaged" suggests a breadth of perspective in the way problems are approached, a willingness not just to focus on any particular part-financial, economic, political, marketing-but to focus on all parts simultaneously, because the important problems are ones that have complex and nuanced dimensions. The school challenges students to think hard about what commitment to their values really implies. It's easy to have values and equally meaningless to have values if they're never challenged and never put into practice. "Values-based" implies choice and it implies sacrifice.

One doesn't have to look much beyond the front page of the newspaper in order to see that there are certainly many hard problems that matter, that are challenging leaders in business, that are challenging leaders of NGOs and in government, and that's where we want our graduates to be motivated. That's what the word "owns" means. Regardless of what others do to address those problems, we want our graduates to see themselves as accountable for finding solutions.

All business and management schools talk about leadership. It's in part what we are all engaged in; it's our common venture. Yet, as you look at schools, you should think very hard about the explicit or implicit model of leadership at any institution you are considering, and evaluate the degree to which that model fits who you are.

As a school, we're not going to be in the position of telling students which problems they should be pursuing. But we insist that they find a hard problem whose solution is going to be a significant benefit to the world, and start pursuing that. Part of starting to pursue that is investments that our students need to make in themselves. We have no illusion that the day that they graduate they will be in a position to command the resources to address these significant and knotty problems, but we do think that, over their time here, they should become increasingly attuned to the path that they need to be on.

Who We Are?


The mission of the Yale School of Management is to educate leaders for business and society. We embody this mission through our distinctive integrated MBA curriculum, through the equally distinctive model of leadership that we develop in our students, and through our vision — indeed, our expectation — that Yale School of Management graduates are broadly engaged, inspiring leaders who own and solve hard problems that matter.

Today, the most significant and important managerial problems are not defined by a single function or industry. Financial markets, globalization, climate change, corporate governance, healthcare, education, development, entrepreneurial activity, to name a few — all of these critical concerns in today's world economy require a broader perspective and a deeper sensitivity to 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. Far from being exclusive to one another, wealth generation and social benefit can go hand in hand. Yale's dual focus on business and society creates leaders who fundamentally understand that essential synergy, and who are uniquely suited for success and for positive impact, in every sector, in any field, anywhere in the world.

Three broad themes, each with its basis in the Yale SOM mission, characterize the essential qualities of a Yale MBA. Taken together, they personify Yale's distinct model of leadership:

Leading and managing across boundaries

Yale SOM has always been dedicated to the premise that value can be created by moving across boundaries — literal boundaries between nations, notional boundaries between cultures, organizational boundaries between sectors, or the conventional boundaries between academic disciplines. The Yale integrated MBA curriculum teaches students to find new solutions by drawing resources from all parts of an organization, an economy, a society.

Transforming positive values into personal, professional, and institutional commitments

Any organization is shaped by the people within it. Leaders, in particular, through their decisions, actions, and enthusiasm, give form to their companies and can make a tremendous positive difference. The Yale MBA program teaches students the importance of identifying their purpose and their passions, and of putting their values-fairness, creativity, honesty, accountability-into practice.

Bringing creativity and discipline to complex management problems

Creativity engenders innovation — new solutions, new ideas, and new approaches. Discipline supplies the habits of mind necessary to analyze innovations for both strengths and weaknesses, and to devise the most feasible plan for making a new proposal work in practice. Yale has long embraced the entrepreneurial spirit of invention — and its power to reshape business and society — while teaching the hard skills that make innovative ideas work.

MBA Program

Yale SOM graduates are leaders in every field of business and management. Regardless of the career track they pursue, our graduates bring a public-spirited awareness and a disposition for innovation.

Our MBA program provides a rigorous training in fundamental skills as a foundation to help students develop meaningful aspirations. While the Yale SOM community is generally cooperative and supportive (aided by the fact that we don’t compute class rank), it is also infused with a restless ambition — a willingness to think creatively and take risks in order to improve the world.

We also offer the Leadership in Healthcare MBA for Executives, a program designed for working, mid-career professionals from public, private, and nonprofit healthcare organizations.
