The rigorous coursework is put in its real-world context by the Colloquium in Healthcare Leadership and given practical application by the Field Studies Program. The Colloquia series brings eminent practitioners from all aspects of healthcare to campus to meet with students in a small-group setting and talk about their perspectives on current issues in healthcare, their organizations, their work, and their careers. Field Studies is a year-long, project-based program that integrates the knowledge and skills gained from coursework and colloquia in an active healthcare setting.
Classes are scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays every other week, with intensive in-residence periods of two weeks in the first summer and one week in the second. On this schedule, students are able to complete the requirements of the Yale MBA in twenty-two months. Graduation is concurrent with the full-time MBA class.
