Master of advanced management program expands

Yale SOM will expand and strengthen the master of advanced management program by opening it to more global students and instituting additional admissions criteria. 

Founded in 2012, the MAM welcomes top MBA graduates from around the world for a year of leadership study at Yale. The program was originally open only to students from schools in the Global Network for Advanced Management. This year, for the first time, Yale will consider applications from students in other top MBA programs. To date, the MAM program has welcomed 544 students from 71 different countries. 

The MAM program will be open to applications from all graduates of international MBA programs starting with the third round of admission, which closes on April 12, 2022.

SOM student wins AAUW fellowship

The American Association of University Women awarded Neha Singh ’22MBA with a fellowship for her work contributing to the global advancement of women.

The AAUW fights for equal economic opportunity for women. They advocate for pro-women legislation, work to close the gender pay gap, and strive to overcome gender disparities in education. Each year, the organization awards seven categories of fellowships and grants to exceptional women in the United States. Singh was chosen for her commitment to bettering the world, particularly for women.

Singh is currently pursuing her master’s in business and strategy from Yale SOM. Women’s issues—both in the workplace and outside of it—are important in her work. Singh was one of two Yale students given AAUW fellowships this year. The other is nursing student Yacoba Zwennes ’23. More than 25 Yale affiliates have won a fellowship or grant through the AAUW since 2004.
