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 our full-time two-year 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 – we enjoy the diversity of interests and experiences that our 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.
Contact Maria Derlipanska, Senior Associate Director of Admissions at the Yale School of Management (firstname.lastname@example.org) for application advice or questions about the program.
The deadline to apply is Sept 13 2017
