Dean Snyder Discusses His Vision for Yale SOM in the Financial Times
On a recent trip to London, Dean Edward A. Snyder sat down with the Financial Times for his first exclusive interview since joining the school on July 1. In the interview, published today, Snyder discussed the three critical competencies business leaders today must possess—understanding competition, cooperation, and the complexities within and across societies—and explained how Yale SOM excels in creating broad-minded leaders who are positioned to meet these challenges.
Snyder emphasized Yale SOM's history of educating leaders who are adept at working across sectors and the school's close connection to Yale University. "We want Yale SOM to be the most connected, the most involved with the university [of any business school]. I think it's important who you attract. If we get the positioning right, we'll get these extraordinarily bright people who are slightly different from the usual draw…there are a lot of enterprises who will look and say, 'This is exactly the kind of [MBA] profile that I want.'"
