Stanford Graduate School of Business is a place where anything and everything is possible. It’s where the boundaries of knowledge are pushed beyond what’s imaginable. Where diverse ideas and perspectives aren’t just accepted, they’re encouraged and embraced.
And in this unique environment of innovation and collaboration, principled leaders emerge. Faculty, students, staff, and alumni develop the courage to take risks, the passion to lead, and the motivation to make a positive impact — on themselves and the world.
Our mission is to create ideas that deepen and advance our understanding of management and with those ideas to develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who change the world.
At Stanford GSB, we believe in the spirit of endless possibilities. So, together, we take chances. We challenge conventional thinking, invite and embrace diverse ideas, and collaborate to change the world.
This entrepreneurial mindset makes innovation and transformation possible. Growing up with Silicon Valley, this mindset is forever a part of our DNA. It’s our secret sauce; it seems somewhat intangible until you experience it firsthand — when you step on campus, take a class online or across the world, meet with faculty, talk to a student, or pitch an idea.
