Hear from MBA students and gain insight into how the Stanford GSB experience made an impact on their lives — both personally and professionally.

People won’t remember how clever you are; they’ll remember how kind you are.
I describe myself as a pretty boring person, which probably helps. Not having hobbies opens up a lot of room for efficiency.
I spent a life in medicine calculating and eliminating risk, but the GSB has taught me to embrace risk.
I want to help women in tech make their voices louder, to be a supporter for them.
That’s how I’ll make my impact on the world. I couldn’t do it being someone who the world wants me to be. I just have to be myself.
I believe most people care deeply and want to unite when it comes to helping others in need.
