Partners and Families

Broaden the meaning of “Stanford family” by including yours.

Families, significant others, and children are a welcome and integral part of the Stanford GSB community.

The Stanford campus provides an enriching set of cultural, athletic, intellectual, and fun opportunities for MBA partners and families to participate in.

Whether enjoying events in the residential community or exploring the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, the Stanford GSB experience has something for every member of the family.

Resources for Students

Stanford University offers resources to support students, partners, and families in the program.

MBA 2022

"Being a mother and a student has been exhilarating and exhausting. It has meant that I have had to balance many more demands on my time and that my priorities have been different from my classmates. The school has been supportive, understanding when I needed more flexibility (on occasion I brought my son to class) and my classmates have been wonderful — throwing me a baby shower and offering free babysitting. Although motherhood and pursuing an MBA is challenging, it is doable and has been a very rewarding experience."

MBA 2020

"My experience here is definitely stretching me personally and professionally. Professionally, I have gained countless mentors and enthusiasts and feel endlessly supported in both my family business and in my sales career. Personally, I’ve become a much more effective communicator and leader. Tools for negotiation, motivating others, articulating a strategy, and giving and receiving feedback have helped me be a better wife, mom, daughter, and sister!"
