Admission to the Stanford MBA Program is "need- blind."
That means that your personal resources for financing your education are not considered in our admission decisions.
After you are admitted, the Financial Aid Office determines your financial need and creates an aid package that may include loans, fellowships, or a combination, based on a variety of factors.
Business school is a significant investment in yourself and your future. We're committed to working with international students, US citizens, and permanent residents to meet all of your demonstrated financial needs through fellowships and loans.
Approximately three-fourths of our MBA students receive some sort of financial aid.
Loans for US and International Students
- Loans are available to U.S. and international students.
- Loans offered to international students typically do not need a US co-signer.
Stanford GSB Voices
"Getting an MBA education is a considerable financial investment. For many candidates it seems an obstacle preventing them from applying to a business school. However, Stanford believes no one should be deprived of an education due to financial reasons.
The GSB worked closely with me to help meet my financial needs and made my MBA dream come true."
Maxim Ufaev, MBA 2007
Associate, Mckinsey & Co
Did You Know?
- GSB fellowships are available to US and international students.
- One of the advantages of applying in Round 1 or 2 is the ability to receive an aid award from the Financial Aid Office prior to the date that you must respond to your offer of admission.
To encourage our MBA graduates to make meaningful contributions to social issues, economic growth, and political stability in organizations where salaries are typically lower, the School has developed a loan forgiveness program to reduce the financial impact of GSB educational debt.
