Each year Stanford Graduate School of Business welcomes new tenure-line faculty and lecturers to enrich programmatic offerings and elevate the diversity in faculty thought leadership. Additionally, Stanford GSB also introduces new elective courses for second-year MBA students and Sloan Fellows.

First-year MBA students’ curriculum is set to courses to develop general management perspectives and foundations, while second-year students focus almost exclusively on electives. For Stanford GSB’s one-year MBA for experienced professionals, Sloan Fellows take one quarter of general management foundational courses, and the remaining three quarters include electives.

Below is a listing of the new faculty and elective courses.

New Tenure-Line Faculty

  • Juliane Begenau, assistant professor of finance
  • Bart Bronnenberg, professor of marketing
  • Jung Ho Choi, assistant professor of accounting
  • Stefan Wager, assistant professor of operations, information & technology
  • John M. de Figueiredo is the Edward and Ellen Marie Schwarzman Professor of Law at the Duke Law School and Professor of Strategy and Economics at the Fuqua School of Business
