Clubs & Activities
The GSB social scene is as diverse, fun, and interesting as its student body. The many student organizations at the GSB sponsor a vibrant array of activities on campus and within the broader Bay Area. We have traditions that have endured for decades, as well as new events tailored to, and by, each class.
The GSB is home to a robust MBA student government and over 70 student organizations. The large number of student clubs provides numerous leadership opportunities, ensuring that you will learn as much from your classmates through outside activities as you will in the classroom.
