* Recalled to active duty.

The mission of the Graduate School of Business is to create ideas that deepen and advance the understanding of management and, with these ideas, develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders.

The two-year Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree program is for students who aspire to contribute to society through leadership in business, government, and the nonprofit sector. The general management curriculum rests on a foundation of social science principles and management functions layered with interdisciplinary themes of leadership, entrepreneurship, global management, and social responsibility. The M.B.A. curriculum stresses breadth rather than depth, but includes options for certificates in Global Management and Public Management. A number of joint degree programs allow the M.B.A. to be combined with degrees in the Schools of Education, Law, and Medicine, as well as interdisciplinary degrees in Public Policy and Environmental Studies. The primary criteria for admission are demonstrated leadership potential, intellectual vitality, and diversity among students. No specific undergraduate major or courses are required for admission, but experience with analytic and quantitative concepts is important. Some students enter directly following undergraduate study, but most obtain one or more years of work experience.

The Stanford Sloan Program is an intensive, one-year course of study for middle management executives leading to the degree of Master of Science in Management. Participants must have demonstrated superior achievement and are normally sponsored by their company.

Those interested in college teaching and research are served by the Doctor of Philosophy program.
