The Wall Street Journal has an article today about Yale SOM student and alumni concerns the school is becoming too “corporate.” The concerns balance on the decreased “quirkiness” and non profit emphasis of the business school.
The only thing that is ever certain is change, or so the old saying goes and certainly Dean Ted Snyder has implemented some big changes already. Of course, he was pretty much forced to make changes from day one just given the school’s deficit he inherited alone. Our feedback from alumni clients is that the school is indeed evolving to a more “corporate” focus, but we haven’t heard complaints or criticism. Of course, we’re probably not staying in close enough contact with our older alumni clients who likely chose SOM because of its ‘quirkiness’ and non profit focus, but that’s another story.
In conclusion, please be mindful that all of the b-schools are evolving — and as a good rule of thumb, b-schools tend to evolve more quickly than other graduate school programs — and the school you choose to attend now will likely look different in 10 or more years. (Kind of like your government, favorite restaurant, favorite commercial, favorite TV show, etc.)
Best of luck with your applications!

Shouldn’t you complain if your business school isn’t corporate enough?
