At A Glance

Small, intimate, and very “New England”, Yale SOM offers an Ivy League experience that gives the school more prestige than its ranking. Most famous for its strengths in Non-Profit and Entrepreneurship, Yale’s integrated curriculum focuses on building “a new way of seeing.” Lately Yale has been focusing on building not only a new state-of-the-art campus, but also its strengths in Finance and Consulting. Anne Glover, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Capital Partners; Austin Ligon, co-founder and CEO of CarMax; Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo; and Daniel Weiss, CEO of Metropolitan Museum of Art are alums of this school.

Admissionado Ranking

Very High (2nd Tier)

Roughly-speaking, a 2nd Tier pull finds you in the 2nd half of the Top 15, Top 20: very much in the game with the boys and girls, but whereas the first, exclusive looks may go to that top slice, this bracket is no joke, and puts you in an advantageous position compared to the vast majority of all other MBAs on planet Earth.

Admissionado Grade


For all the fast-lane, super sexy, sought-after roles in say consulting, finance (buyside especially), the A+ and A schools tend to have earlier and perhaps better bites at the apple. While these positions are disproportionately popular among Top Tier MBAs, they are still a narrow slice of the broader game ('the business world') where an impressive MBA is dangerous. In this broader context, A- makes you about as dangerous as you need to be. While you might need to prove yourself just a tad more, alums from this class end up in by and large the same arenas as those from higher-ranked schools.
