Stanford is home to more than 20 individual libraries, each with a world-class collection of books, journals, films, maps, and databases.

Stanford GSB is very willing to let you take risks, and is incredibly rich in what it can offer, from faculty to research tools to peers who talk as passionately about their fields of study as you do.

It was a pretty amazing time, in terms of both productivity and intellectual engagement. Stanford has one of the purest research cultures I’ve ever experienced, and it’s something I’m trying to replicate with my own students today.
