The Stanford GSB Alumni Association is dedicated to the promotion of professional development and building a strong network, among our alumni around the world.
Today the Stanford GSB Alumni Association has 27,705 living alumni and has organized chapters in roughly two dozen U.S. cities and on every continent. It also has chapters for special interest groups. In addition to networking services including an online directory of other graduates, the Stanford GSB Alumni Association offers programs, reunions, and ongoing educational opportunities through Lifelong Learning.
The first organized alumni groups started in San Francisco and Los Angeles and for many years those cities remained the only places where Stanford GSB graduates could find formal association with other alumni. Graduates in other areas did not belong to a common alumni association and therefore many lost personal contacts with the school and alumni after graduation.
By 1978 chapters had been started in 13 major metropolitan areas in the United States and abroad in Brussels, London, Paris, and Tokyo. Today chapters are located in more than 22 American metropolitan areas and 39 abroad — at least one chapter on every continent.
