You must apply and be accepted independently to both the Electrical Engineering Department at the School of Engineering and Stanford GSB.
We recommend that you apply to Stanford GSB in Round 2. You may apply in Round 1, but if admitted to the MBA Program, you will be required to respond to your admission offer before receiving your decision from Electrical Engineering. If you apply in Round 3, you will not receive your Stanford GSB decision until May, which is after the deadline to respond to an offer from Electrical Engineering.
You must take the GRE, which is required by the Electrical Engineering Department and accepted by Stanford GSB; it is unnecessary to take the GMAT for your MBA application.
You may also be required to demonstrate English language proficiency. Learn more about the MBA Program’s requirement and the university’s Exam Requirements for International Applicants.
As an alternative, you may apply to the MS in Electrical Engineering/MBA joint degree program during your first year at Stanford GSB.
If you are applying for deferred enrollment, you may not apply to this joint degree program until your first year of the MBA Program.
If you are admitted to both programs, you may start your studies at either the School of Engineering or Stanford GSB.
