The Silver Scholars Program allows college seniors to earn a Yale MBA degree in three years directly after graduation, spring-boarding them toward their career goals and leadership positions. The program is designed for exceptional students with strong leadership potential. These students enroll in the full-time two-year Yale MBA program but rather than the traditional summer MBA internship, Silver Scholars complete a year-long internship, extending their experience to three years. We also offer a joint-degree with the Yale Law School for students interested in pursuing a joint MBA/JD degree.
Candidates of all majors are welcome to apply. The admissions committee is looking for candidates with a combination of intelligence, maturity, and curiosity who aim to be future leaders in their field of interest. There is no particular background that is given preference – Yale values the diversity of interests and experiences that its Silver Scholars bring to the broader MBA class at Yale SOM. A current Scholar, Ryan Hauser, recently shared some thoughts about his experience in the Program in this blog.
