The two-year Stanford MBA Program is a time of reflection — which begins with your application.

Apply to the Stanford MBA Program

  • Read through this website carefully; it is your primary source for admission information.
  • Apply online in one of three application rounds. You may only apply once during any application cycle.
  • Let us know if we can help you at any time throughout your application process.​

Apply to Both the MBA and MSx Programs

If you are still deciding between the Stanford MBA and MSx Programs, Stanford GSB offers the option to apply to both, with one application and one application fee.

  • Compare the two programs to determine which is right for you.
  • Make sure you understand the criteria for both the MBA and MSx programs (at least eight years of experience is required for the MSx program).
  • You must apply in Round 1 or 2 to use the combined application.
  • Pay one $275 application fee for your combined application.
  • On the first screen of the MBA application, select the “MBA and MSx Program Application.”
  • Address your interest in both the MBA and MSx programs in Essay B.
  • Your application will be reviewed independently, based on each program’s specific evaluation criteria.
  • If you are admitted to both programs, you may accept only one offer of admission.
