Three physicians named Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellows

Three new recipients of the Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellowship in Health Equity Leadership have begun their studies as part of the MBA for Executives program’s Class of 2024. The fellowship includes study in the healthcare area of focus of Yale SOM’s executive MBA program, as well as specialized training and mentorship on addressing healthcare disparities.

The new fellows are Nazleen Bharmal, associate chief of community health and partnerships at the Cleveland Clinic; Amaziah Coleman, a medical officer in the division of allergy, immunology, and transplantation at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health; and Karen Orjuela, a University of Colorado neurologist.

Popular course brings global business challenges into the classroom

Students in Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld’s long-running elective course Strategic Leadership across Sectors, looked at the Russian invasion of Ukraine through a business lens this year, asking how business could address the crisis.

The course takes a cross-sector view of corporate leaders and the impact their decisions have on business and society. Following the Ukrainian invasion, several students joined Sonnenfeld in compiling a much-publicized and influential list showing which companies had curtailed their dealings in Russia. All spring, the list generated massive amounts of media interest.

Summer program draws students from across US and Europe

About 50 PhD students attended the 2022 Yale Summer School in Behavioral Finance from June 13 to 17. The one-week program is an intensive course in behavioral finance led by Yale SOM faculty members who are leading practitioners in this growing field. “This is the seventh summer school we’ve held, and we’re delighted that it’s become a marquee event in the academic finance world,” said organizer Nicholas Barberis, the Stephen and Camille Schramm Professor of Finance.
