The Joint Masters Program is a three-year program offered by the Yale School of Management (SOM) and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (FES) through which students earn both an MBA and an environmental masters degree. The rigorous curriculum affords students the opportunity to work with and learn from world renowned faculty at two premier graduate schools, as well as leading professionals in business and environmental management. The program is in its 25th year, making it the oldest program of its kind in the world.
The Joint Masters Program offers a unique opportunity to study two fields that are becoming increasingly connected. Preparing leaders to understand the relationships between business and the environment is crucial in addressing the challenges that an increasingly modern and global society creates. The intersection of business and the environment offers many exciting and dynamic opportunities for creativity in moving towards a sustainable economy.
There are currently 22 students in the program who come to Yale from diverse backgrounds and plan to go on to work on multiple environmental issues across a wide range of sectors and industries. Prospective students are encouraged to contact the admissions offices at each school, as well as faculty and current students, to learn more about the program.
