It gives me great pleasure to have back on Admissions Straight Talk and introduce Bruce DelMonico, Assistant Dean of Admissions at the Yale School of Management. He has been on the admissions team at Yale since 2004, became the Director in 2006, and the Assistant Dean in 2012. He was last on Admissions Straight Talk almost exactly two years ago in October 2019. It seems like a lifetime ago, because that was, of course, before COVID. 







Bruce, welcome to Admissions Straight Talk. It's a pleasure to have you back on the show. So much has changed in the last two years.

That's a very broad, multi-sector mission. I think that definitely does animate and influence just about everything that happens here at the School of Management. For students who are here, for those of your listeners who come here to Yale, that means a few things. The first year of your experience, the core curriculum consists of our integrated curriculum, which is different from what you would experience in other business schools. I think that's one distinctive aspect. And we can go more into that, but I won't bore you with all the details now. But it's a very integrated, as the name implies, a multidisciplinary approach, really trying to get our students to think broadly across disciplines and functions.







We also are case-based, but we have our own case writing team, so we use raw cases,
