SOM Once Again Offering Pre-M.B.A. Leadership Program for College Undergraduates of Color

College undergraduates of color will once again have the opportunity to build their leadership skills and hone their business acumen through the Yale School of Management’s (SOM) Pre-M.B.A. Leadership Program.

Now in its second year, the two-week summer program is aimed at college juniors and seniors and recent college graduates from populations typically under-represented in management education. It is designed to develop individual leadership skills that will be relevant in the classroom, workplace and community, and to expose participants to how the leadership and management knowledge gained through an M.B.A. can be an asset in a broad range of careers and personal endeavors.

“Our goal is to identify potential leaders, give them leadership skills to build on, and get them inspired about how they can use those skills to make a positive difference in the world,” says Shelley Clifford, Yale SOM’s deputy director of admissions, and coordinator of the Pre-M.B.A. Leadership Program.

The program’s curriculum is modeled after elements of Yale’s integrated M.B.A. curriculum and is taught by SOM faculty.

Applications may be submitted through the program website:; the deadline to apply is March 18. For further information, contact Zachary White, assistant director of admissions at SOM, at 203-432-5635 or
