How do I locate and contact a specific alumnus or alumna of Stanford GSB?

If you are an alumnus/alumna of Stanford and have an Alumni Network account, you can search for your fellow alumnus/alumna by logging in and clicking on the Directories link in the left-side navigation.

If you have not yet created your free online account, register. If you are unable to log in, visit our help with the site login.


  • If you are an employer and need to verify that an alumnus/alumna indeed did graduate from Stanford GSB, contact the University Registrar directly for instructions on how to obtain this information from the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC). Also contact the University Registrar if you seek information about a deceased relative.
