Yale University



At Yale SOM, we have learned that veterans bring powerful skills and essential values to their MBA courses, their professional trajectories, the Yale community, and the alumni network. A degree from Yale SOM reflects a world of connections to civilian and military leaders, the 30-school Global Network for Advanced Management, and the university at large. You have already proved your leadership through your service; the mission-driven experience of Yale SOM will elevate and advance your opportunities no matter what your path.

  • Yale Veterans Scholarship (anonymous donor, preference for post-9/11 active duty)
  • Yale has a Yellow Ribbon match of $20,000, through which, when combined with VA support, a veteran who is 100% eligible for the post 9/11 GI bill will receive close to a full ride for the MBA program. Yellow Ribbon also includes students in the EMBA, MAM, MMS and Executive programs.
  • SOM waives the application fee for veterans and offers enrollment deferrals to military candidates who are currently deployed in action.
  • We also have a Memorandum of Understanding with West Point, which provides full support for candidates returning to West Point to teach in certain disciplines.
