Stanford Graduate School of Business empowers the world’s brightest students to act — to take steps that will change the world.
The Stanford GSB Difference
We develop leaders through each of our programs. We attract cutting-edge faculty. Our students are not afraid of making mistakes; they fear only missed opportunities. Our alumni are insightful, passionate professionals who are never satisfied with the status quo. Instead, they choose to employ their knowledge, talent, and ideas to create change.
Your Stanford GSB experience will be like nobody else’s. And in the end both you, and your world, will be transformed.
Access to Experts and Risk-Takers
A Culture of Collaboration
From group projects to student clubs to on-campus living, our culture reduces competition between students, encourages teamwork, and deepens relationships. Students have access to seven world-class schools on a single campus — business, earth sciences, education, engineering, law, medicine, and humanities and sciences — exposing them to more diversity, more ideas, and more inspiration.
A Personalized Experience
The entering class sizes in our programs are notably smaller than some other leading schools. This intimate class size supports individualized attention, allowing each student to shape the academic experience to suit his or her interests.
Innovation in Our DNA
Stanford University began with the pioneering spirit of Leland and Jane Stanford, then grew into a research university with a reputation as a catalyst for change. Drawing on the energy of Silicon Valley, one of the world’s most dynamic centers for business and innovation, students learn to try new ideas and not fear failure.
Our faculty focus on the global context of management, and we train leaders for an international economy. We offer international study trips, internships, and programs around the world.
A State-of-the-Art Facility
Our home, the Knight Management Center, has been designed for the future, with an eye towards technology, innovation, collaboration, and sustainability. Under the sunny skies of the San Francisco Bay Area, there is no place quite like it.
The intimate size of our programs means that relationships are strong and alumni can rely on support from each other long after they graduate.
