Why Attend YPC?

The staff and faculty of YPC are dedicated to creating a unique educational experience that is more immersive and personal than available anywhere else. This is a course, not a conference.

A challenging and timely curriculum

YPC offers lectures that delve deeply in the current (and future) state of the industry and the most important issues and up-to-the minute trends, supplemented with small group discussions, one-on-one counseling sessions, and ample time to carry on the conversation outside the classroom.

An intimate seminar setting

The sessions are conducted in a collegial atmosphere in which the active participation of all students is strongly encouraged by the faculty. The size of the class is limited to a maximum of 70 students in order to allow a closer relationship between the faculty and students to flourish.

Direct interaction with expert faculty

The faculty, industry experts and distinguished members of the Yale School of Management, are carefully selected for their experience, proven success in innovation, and teaching ability. Their real-world examples and insights will help you improve your critical thinking and decision-making skills, and the best practices and case studies they share will provide practical takeaways that can immediately be put into place within your organization.

I left energized ready to seize this time of upheaval to find new ways to keep our industry relevant vital. More importantly, I left the course knowing that I am better prepared to lead my company through necessary transformation.

YPC provided me with insight and information that I wouldn’t ordinarily be privy to – consumer marketing, editorial brand challenges, monetization of a brand from the editorial perspective, visual thinking and much, much more.
