Integrated Curriculum

For the 2006-2007 academic year, Yale SOM introduced its "Integrated Curriculum," an effort to move away from the typical "siloed" teaching approach to a more functional and integrated perspective. In their first year, students will examine various roles that people and organizations play and how they affect a business. Internal roles include employee, operations engine, finance manager, and innovator. External roles include investor, Customer, competitor, the State and society. First-year students will take at least one elective and be required to spend two weeks studying abroad, meeting with business leaders and government officials in Brazil, China, India, or elsewhere. The second-year curriculum comprises electives. The new curriculum is unique among those offered by leading business schools.[citation needed]
