News: Silver Scholars Program: Yale School of Management

Posted September 6, 2017

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.

For more information, please see the program brochure. Interested seniors (and juniors) can contact Maria Derlipanska for application advice or questions about the program.
