Class of 2006

The 2006 Yale World Fellows include the deputy CEO of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the minister of finance of Costa Rica, the director general of the Ethiopian Intellectual Property Office, the managing partner of Vietnam’s leading law firm and a top correspondent at Egypt’s most widely read newspaper. 

“The World Fellows Program is a crucial component of Yale’s continuing globalization efforts,” said Yale President Richard C. Levin. “I welcome this extraordinary new class of World Fellows to Yale.”

“The 2006 Yale World Fellows have a remarkable record of leadership and achievement,” said Yale World Fellows Program Director Daniel C. Etsy, the Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy at Yale. “Most exciting is their potential for future leadership on the global stage. I am confident that the Program will help them further develop that capacity.”
