First public education management class graduates

Thirty emerging education leaders gathered with faculty, staff, and loved ones on August 12, to mark the completion of their program at the Broad Center at Yale SOM in a commencement ceremony. These students, who earned a master’s in management studies, are the first graduates of a new program designed to equip emerging, mid-career public education leaders with the skills, tools, and mindsets to accelerate their impact on the students, schools, and communities they serve. Over their 14-month program, the students traveled to the Yale SOM campus for five residence weeks while continuing to work full-time in large, urban public education systems across the US.

Professor’s paper wins two prizes

Jayanti Owens, assistant professor of organizational behavior, won two awards at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association (ASA) in August for her paper “Double Jeopardy: Teacher Biases, Racialized Organizations, and the Production of Racial/Ethnic Disparities in School Discipline.”

Owens won the W. Richard Scott Award for Distinguished Scholarship from the Organizations, Occupations, and Work section of the ASA, and the James Coleman Award for Best Article from the Sociology of Education section. “Double Jeopardy” was published in the American Sociological Review in 2022.

New students welcomed

The newest students in Yale SOM’s residential master’s degree programs filled the Edward P. Evans Hall’s courtyard on August 14 for welcoming remarks and advice from school leaders. The morning event kicked off the school’s weeklong orientation program. In attendance were new members of the full-time MBA, master of advanced management, master’s in global business and society, master’s in systemic risk, and master’s in asset management programs. New students in the MBA for Executives program began their Yale SOM careers in July.
