Life at Stanford GSB
The Unique Environment
Our year-round sunshine and balmy climate allow for outdoor living, bringing people together in outside spaces. Our new classrooms, study areas, and other facilities were constructed with an emphasis on technology, collaboration, and sustainability.
A Diverse Student Population
Students arrive from more than 50 countries, with many different educational, professional, and social backgrounds.
Our collaborative educational process benefits from these diverse backgrounds, encouraging a range of perspectives and approaches to real-world problems. This diversity encompasses personal experiences and goals, culture, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, and more.
A Full Life Beyond the Classrooms
Energetic and engaged students organize and participate in a variety of social and interest- or career-oriented activities. Students also have access to groups, events, and facilities across the larger Stanford University campus.
Integrated Living and Working
A range of residential options encourages collaboration and enables students to benefit from the diverse community. Single students, married students, and students with families will all find a living space that’s right for them.
Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, south of San Francisco, there’s no better place to study business. The San Francisco Bay Area provides endless opportunities for cultural enrichment, easy access to the outdoors, and fun.
When you first arrive you get an overwhelming amount of work that forces you to reshape your experience. When I started prioritizing things that really mattered — not just being a better student, but being a good father, husband, and human being — then I started to piece the jigsaw puzzle together.
