The Art of an MBA

Here’s another example of the diversity of Stanford MBA students and the organizations they affect. It was recently announced that Lesley Koenig, MBA/Masters in Education 2001, will be the next general manager of Opera Boston. Koenig, who is a fellow at Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, has held management roles at the Metropolitan Opera and the San Francisco Ballet.

All organizations can benefit from leaders educated in general management. Learn more about where Stanford MBA alumni apply their skills.

Stanford Appoints First-Ever Director of Diversity and First-Gen Programs

With about 15% of Stanford’s undergraduate student body being the first in their family to attend a four-year college, the University has appointed Tommy Lee Woon our first-ever Director of Diversity and First-Gen Programs. He will partner with strong existing organizations like el Centro Chicano, the Native American Cultural Center, the Black Community Services Center, and a rich variety of clubs on campus to address undergraduate student needs.

Best wishes to all as we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lizabeth, Assistant Director of MBA Admissions & Director of Diversity Initiatives
