Each year, we enroll approximately 365 students who have unique combinations
of high leadership potential, academic excellence, and individual
experiences and perspectives. We have neither quotas nor formulae for
admission; there is no prototype of the “perfect” MBA candidate. What the
candidates admitted to the MBA Program have in common is the ability to
benefit from— and contribute to—the academic community. The very qualities
that differentiate them from one another make the Business School a
stimulating place to learn and expand one’s horizons. We evaluate all of our
applicants in these three areas: demonstrated leadership potential, strong
academic aptitude, and diversity among students.
COST AND FINANCIAL AID
All students, both U.S. and international, are eligible for fellowships and
loans. All fellowships and most loans are based on financial need.
Fellowships are available to all U. S. and international financial aid
applicants who can demonstrate need. Loans are available to U.S. and
international students. Loans at the GSB come from a variety of sources and
are available to U.S. students. There are both need-based and non-need-based
loans. For international students, the Stanford University Graduate School
of Business has partnered with the First Marblehead Corporation and Bank of
America to provide private educational loans, called the GATE Loan. This
loan does not require cosigner, and maximum loan can not exceed cost of
attendance minus financial aid. Due to the rigorous nature of the MBA
curriculum, you should not rely on part-time work to defray the cost of the
program. The GSB does not offer college work-study. Rarely, research and/or
teaching assistantships are offered to MBA students.
Please answer both Question 1 and Question 2. The length of your responses
is up to you. You should feel free to take the space you need to answer the
questions fully; most applicants find that the equivalent of three to seven
typed, double-spaced pages per essay is appropriate.
1. What matters most to you, and why?
2. Why do you wish to earn an MBA degree, particularly at the Stanford
Graduate School of Business? How will the type of academic experience
offered at the Stanford GSB help you achieve your short-term and long-term
3. (Additional information) If there is any other information that is
critical for us to know and is not captured elsewhere (e.g., extenuating
circumstances affecting academic or work performance), please feel free to
include it on additional sheets of paper as an addendum.
