For Prospective Students


Choose the YSE-SOM Joint Degree

CBEY is closely partnered with the Yale School of Management (SOM) and the Yale School of the Environment (YSE), which together offer a joint degree that’s the oldest of its kind in the U.S. We believe business can be a tool for positive environmental change — and that this joint degree creates the thoughtful, passionate, and informed leaders that will bring that change to life.
