Student and Family Life

One year to focus on your goals, reflect on your career, absorb knowledge, and enrich your life—for you and your family. Unlike an executive management program or MBA leadership development programs, the Stanford MSx (Master of Science in Management) one year masters program is designed with your whole family in mind.

  • An immersive lifestyle on the Stanford campus and in the heart of Silicon Valley gives you access to one of the world’s premier ecosystems of human capital every day, allowing you to focus and achieve your highest potential.
  • A living and learning environment includes classes across Stanford, diverse social events, fitness facilities, and enriching activities for you, as well as for partners and family members.
  • Ground-breaking research, renowned guest speakers, and a community of thought-leaders — all striving to change lives, change organizations, and change the world.

The Stanford MSx community is like no other in the world, bringing together not only its globally diverse cohort of accomplished students, but also the family members that join so many of them in their journey at Stanford. More than half our students live at Stanford with their significant other while attending the program, and more than 30% bring children.

Your year in the MSx Program will revolutionize your life and that of your family. It is an opportunity to chase the vision you want for your career, plug into a tight-knit community, and add multinational friends to your network.

Bonus: Spouses and children also relish the year and experience their own growth and transformations.
