In late August, the newest group of Yale School of Management Master of Advanced Management, Master’s Degree in Global Business, and Society (GBS), and Master’s Degree in Systemic Risk students officially began their Class of 2020 journey.

Yale SOM deans and faculty members introduced the 120 one-year Master’s students at the Edward P. Evans Hall’s Zhang auditorium. Formally introducing the new students, Deputy Dean Anjani Jain said:

“You are entering the school at a time of exciting transition as Dean Kerwin Charles takes the helm. “Your presence here is a mark of your ambition to make a lasting contribution to both private industry and the public good.”

MBA graduates that are members of the Global Network for Advanced Management are welcome to enroll in the Yale SOM Master of Advanced Management. The Master’s Degree in Global Business and Society is typically geared towards younger students that may not have an MBA yet, or are currently members of the Global Network for Advanced Management.

Andrew Metrick, the Janet L. Yellen Professor of Finance and Management, also spoke at the welcome event, telling new Yale SOM students, “It’s been a fantastic experiment that has now grown into a core part of the school.”

Valentina Antill, Managing Director at Citigroup and ’94 alum, also addressed students at the event, starting off the introductory week at Yale SOM. Students also participated in workshops, tours, team projects, and more.
