World class business education


This review is for Stanford

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

Stanford is a world class university located in the heart of Silicon Valley. The GSB is an exceptionally strong business education and is well integrated into the rest of the university. The defining strengths of the program are the people: fellow students, professors, and alumni. These profoundly capable and good natured people form a supportive yet ambitious culture. Students are charged both with finding and achieving our own personal brand of happiness ("what matters most to you and why?") and to make our mark on the world after we graduate ("change lives, change organizations, change the world."). There is incredible support to chart your own path and a wide variety of programs and diverse classmates/alumni who can help you get there. I 100% recommend choosing Stanford if you're fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Superb. Exceptional flexibility to create an academic program that fits your needs and interests. Very easy to enroll in multiple classes throughout the university (law, engineering, etc.) and still meet graduation requirements.

About job placement process

On campus recruiting is active here, but it probably has a lower emphasis than at other programs. That is partly because the GSB is a smaller class size and there is a strong emphasis on charting your own path (especially for entrepreneurs or into the technology industry). It is definitely the way to go for those interested in consulting, banking, or some of the larger employers (Starbucks, GM, etc.).
