Academic Areas

Stanford GSB faculty pursue research and teaching within seven academic areas.

Research is sparked by intellectual curiosity and enriched by interactions with other academics and business leaders around the globe. Many are engaged in multidisciplinary work that crosses scholarly boundaries within the school or take part in work that involves faculty from other schools or departments at Stanford University.

Courses are renewed constantly as knowledge gained through faculty research enters classrooms to enrich the experience of MBA and PhD students, Fellows in the Stanford MSx Program, and the executives and non-business students in our Executive Education and other non-degree programs.
