Yale SOM Course Explores Washington and Wall Street
In a class co-taught by Jeffrey E. Garten and Stephen Roach, students met with leaders from finance and government as they studied the lessons of the financial crisis.
The Business Plan
Each year Yale students learn the art and science of starting a business from two experts with long track records of success in venture capital and entrepreneurial startups.
Students focus their interests and develop the skills and knowledge they will draw on throughout their careers by choosing elective courses from both the School of Management and the broader University. Yale SOM elective courses are both discipline-based, for specialized study of a particular area, and integrated, building on the connections made in the core curriculum.
Students take four units of electives in the second semester of the first year and all electives in the second year.
