The Full-time MBA Programme is one year and has a mission to teach students how to understand business in a broader context.  Students will develop fundamental business skills and abilities to draw connections between ideas and develop solutions.  During the programme, students move through the integrated core curriculum and learn from a collection of required programmes. The programme begins with an orientation to management that develops fundamental concepts within students needed to understand markets and solve complex business problems.  Next, organisational perspectives are covered, followed by a faculty-led international experience.  The programme ends with an integrated leadership perspective course that is seven weeks long.  Throughout the entire programme, leadership development is integrated into each area.

The MBA for Executives: Leadership in Healthcare is a 22-month programme that has participants work closely with other professionals to share ideas and approaches to problem-solving for the healthcare industry.  Students spend two in-residence periods lasting two weeks and one week in years one and two, alongside courses every other weekend on Fridays and Saturdays. Classes are structured in individual and group assignments and formal and informal interactions with faculty and healthcare leaders.  The classes are cohort-based and the curriculum is designed around the three elements of a multidisciplinary perspective, a broad-minded, intellectually curious approach to business and the use of raw cases to deliver course materials.  The programme also contains an independent study programme that allows students to broaden their global knowledge, and an SOM Healthcare Conference, which allows students to spend time with network and industry leaders.  Below is the programmes curriculum, provided by Yale.
