The Stanford GSB Experience

Stanford Graduate School of Business empowers you to act — to take steps that will change the world.

Changing the World

Our programs develop insightful leaders. Our students are not afraid of making mistakes; they fear only missed opportunities. Our alumni are insightful, passionate professionals who are never satisfied with the status quo. Instead, they choose to employ their knowledge, talent, and ideas to create change.

Innovation in Our DNA

Stanford University began with the pioneering spirit of Leland and Jane Stanford, then grew into a research university with a reputation as a catalyst for change. Drawing on the energy of Silicon Valley, one of the world’s most dynamic centers for business and innovation, you will learn to try new ideas and not fear failure.

Tailor your academic career to your interests. You will have access to seven world-class schools on a single campus — business, earth sciences, education, engineering, law, medicine, and humanities and sciences — exposing you to more diversity, more ideas, and more inspiration.

Customize your learning experience with a range of global experiences, as well as focused learning in entrepreneurship, social innovation, leadership, communication skills, and more.

A Culture of Collaboration

From group projects to student clubs to on-campus living, our culture reduces competition between students, encourages teamwork, and deepens relationships.

Our home, the Knight Management Center, has been designed for the future, with an eye towards technology, innovation, collaboration, and sustainability. Under the sunny skies of the San Francisco Bay Area, there is no place quite like it.

Alumni Community

Our collaborative approach and the intimate size of our programs means that relationships are strong and alumni can rely on support from each other long after they graduate — wherever they are around the world.
