New Electrical Engineering/MBA Joint Degree Program

Beginning this fall, graduate students can apply for admission to a new joint degree program in electrical engineering and business. The joint degree will require three years of study instead of the usual four years needed to complete each program individually. Students must apply separately to, and be accepted by, both the Stanford MBA Program and the Electrical Engineering MS Program.

The new joint degree links two of Stanford University's world-class schools—the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Stanford School of Engineering. The program equips students to take new technologies from basic research to commercial products and drive future innovations.

Stanford MBA students increasingly have sought second degrees in recent years as the opportunities for cross-sector leadership in the workplace have grown. Approximately 1 in 6 students pursues joint or dual degree studies. The new joint degree in electrical engineering joins the other Stanford MBA joint degree options: JD/MBA, MA Education/MBA, MPP/MBA, MS/Computer Science, and MS Environment & Resources/MBA.

Experience a Week in the Life of a Stanford MBA Student

What's it like to be an MBA student at the Graduate School of Business? Depends who you ask. Colin, a former US Naval Officer, makes quick trips home to change his newborn's diaper. Amanda and her classmates learn about the capital asset pricing model and the Modigliani-Miller theorum from her finance professor's M&Ms. Jennifer wakes up just in time to make it to her Career Life and Vision group meeting.

See the day-to-day experiences of nine students from the Class of 2015 in our new Week in the Life profiles. You'll learn what life is like at the GSB as these students share their favorite memories, post-graduation goals, and more.
