Stanford MBA

We believe a great idea can change lives, change organizations, change the world. And great ideas start here.

MBA Program

It all starts at Stanford. It all starts with you.

Change starts here. Change lives, change organizations, change the world. Our motto is more than words — ideas started here have fundamentally changed how the world works, connects, and lives. But there is another change a little less quantifiable — that internal change that occurs as students become leaders by challenging themselves intellectually, engaging and collaborating with their equally driven peers, and gaining global exposure.


No matter the end goal, our two-year MBA program will help you become a stronger leader and a better human. Find out more about how your time at Stanford can change you: Why Stanford MBA.
