Yale SOM Says Yes to GRE

As of this fall, prospective applicants to the Yale School of Management may submit scores from either the GRE or the GMAT, Yale Daily News reported Thursday.

“Yale exists as a multi-sector school with students from various backgrounds that plan to take on a variety of careers,” SOM Admissions Director Bruce DelMonico said. “The GRE is more flexible for students that are thinking about different types of programs and is helpful in attracting the strong, diverse candidates we are interested in.”

The SOM used to accept the GRE years ago, the article reveals, but dropped it in the mid-1990s when the school shifted its focus to awarding MBA degrees, rather than the master’s in public and private management degree the school had awarded since its founding in 1976.
