How much value does the Yale School of Management attribute to attracting students from Europe?

One of three aspirations of Yale SOM’s Dean Snyder is to make Yale SOM the most global U.S. business school. This is not only visible in the number of international exchange programs and partner institutions but also in the number of international students. 40% of the class of 2017 are international students, however, only 6% from Europe. Therefore, it is a major goal of the Admissions office to attract much more students from Europe.
