Yale SOM Welcomes Diverse MBA Class of 2016

Bruce DelMonico, director of MBA admissions at the Yale School of Management, recently shared the details of the incoming class of 2016 MBA students. With 39% hailing from outside the United States, 37% women, and 25% U.S. minorities, this class is one of the most diverse in the school’s history. The Class of 2015 is made up of 32% international students, 39% women, 22% U.S. minorities.

Students come from more than 150 different schools, DelMonico reveals, noting that the most common are Yale, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, the Indian Institute of Technology, and Princeton.

With an average GMAT score of 719—five points higher than the Class of 2015—and an average GPA over 3.5, Yale’s incoming MBAs are academically accomplished and have been university valedictorians, class presidents, and recipients of Rhodes, Fulbright, Soros, and Humanity in Action Scholarships and Fellowships.

Yale SOM continues its tradition of attracting mission-driven and dynamic people, says DelMonico, as the school prepares to welcome class members who are table tennis champions, mountaineers, poker champions, world travelers, published novelists, and a former co-captain of the White House softball team, among many other talented individuals.
