Students in Yale SOM's New Master of Advanced Management Program Arrive for Orientation
A group of students with global roots has arrived on the Yale SOM campus as the school launches its Master of Advanced Management (MAM) program.
The MAM is a one-year program for students who have already earned an MBA, or equivalent degree, from member schools in the Global Network for Advanced Management, an affiliation of 21 international business schools that connects students and faculty with their peers worldwide to share ideas, case studies, and research.
The MAM program offers international students the chance to deepen their understanding of today's most complex management issues. Students enroll in a range of elective courses at SOM and throughout Yale. They bring a diversity of viewpoints and insight to the classroom, which benefits their peers preparing for careers in an increasingly globalized and interconnected workplace.
The program begins with a five-day Orientation, which started on August 15, that includes an introduction to Yale SOM's faculty, curriculum, and career resources, and a reception at the New York Stock Exchange in New York City.
"The inaugural Master of Advanced Management cohort is composed of 20 talented individuals drawn from every region of the world," says Ian Rogan, director of the MAM program. "Their active participation in the SOM community will greatly enrich the learning experience and networking opportunities for Yale MBA students and other members of the Yale community."
The class's students hail from Ireland, Russia, China, Venezuela, Mexico, Indonesia, Spain, Turkey, Korea, South Korea, Italy, and Puerto Rico. MBA programs represented include Renmin University of China School of Business, Fudan University School of Management, and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School in China; UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School in Ireland; IE Business School in Spain; INCAE Business School in Costa Rica; University of Indonesia Faculty of Economics; National University of Singapore Business School; Koç University Graduate School of Business in Turkey, and Seoul National University Graduate School of Business in South Korea.
