Yale SOM 2015-2016 MBA Essay Question

Yale School of Management has confirmed that the essay question for this upcoming admissions season remains unchanged from last year. The 2015-2016 MBA essay prompt is:

The Yale School of Management educates individuals who will have deep and lasting impact on the organizations they lead. Describe how you have positively influenced an organization as an employee, a member, or an outside constituent.

(500 words maximum)

According to Admissions Director Bruce DelMonico, the admissions committee decided to stick with this question because it, “…really gets to the core of what Yale SOM is about and embodies our founding mission of educating leaders for business and society.”

The online application will go live on July 1, 2015, and DelMonico says the school will continue to offer a sliding scale application fee for applicants whose total annual compensation is less than US $20,000, and a further reduced fee for applicants whose compensation is below US $10,000.
