Academic Advantages

Our global reputation arises from a unique combination of advantages that helps students launch meaningful careers and make an impact.

Everything Stanford Has to Offer

Our students draw on resources from all of Stanford University’s world-class schools, including law, engineering, medicine, education, earth sciences, and humanities and sciences. This collaborative, cross-disciplinary culture is evident in all Stanford GSB programs. You might even decide to pursue a joint or dual degree — which one in six MBA students chooses to do.

An Unparalleled Faculty

A team that includes Nobel laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences, combined with a 6-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, means every student has direct access to the incomparable level of expertise of our faculty.

A Personalized Experience

The intimate learning environment at Stanford GSB allows for close peer-to-peer interaction, small-group collaboration, and one-to-one coaching. In fact, our MBA class size is half that of other leading schools — averaging about 400 students. Our MSx, PhD, and Executive Education programs average low class sizes as well — about 100, 90, and 40 students per class, respectively. And, a wide array of course choices allows you to tailor your curriculum to your unique skills, experience, and goals.

Your Stanford GSB experience will connect you with an exceptional range of experiences, individuals, and opportunities.
