The Stanford GSB faculty who teach in the PhD Program is a select group of accomplished scholars, respected researchers, and innovative thinkers.

Their achievements include several Nobel Prizes, memberships in the National Academy of Sciences and the Econometric Society, multiple John Bates Clark Medals, and more.

PhD faculty members are uncompromisingly committed to student success, and value the opportunity to serve as both mentors and colleagues. Throughout your doctoral experience, they’ll provide support, insight, and inspiration.

Because the student-faculty ratio is 1-to-1, you can expect to work closely with your professors from your earliest days in the program, both in the classroom and in collaborative research endeavors.
