Events of Particular Interest to US Minorities
At the Stanford Graduate School of Business, we look for diversity in the broadest possible terms, encompassing (but not limited to) educational and professional backgrounds, personal experiences and goals, culture, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and nationality.
We offer information sessions that address the perspectives of people of color who are considering the Stanford MBA Program. Prospective candidates can learn more about the Stanford GSB from the perspective of minority MBA alumni.
We welcome people of all backgrounds to attend this event, which will address the perspectives of US minorities.
We also encourage you to register with us to receive invitations to events in your area.

Dean's CornerDiverse Perspectives
by Derrick Bolton, MBA 1998
Assistant Dean for MBA Admissions
The three primary criteria for admission to the Stanford MBA Program are intellectual vitality, demonstrated leadership potential, and personal qualities and contributions.
I think (I hope!) you are fairly clear on what we mean by intellectual vitality and demonstrated leadership potential.
But personal qualities and contributions? What do we mean by that? Broadly, we mean that your individual perspectives and interests make a difference in the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) community.
