Los Tigres Del Norte Prowl the GSB

The GSB's Global Study Trips offer abundant opportunities for learning well after the trips are over. MBA students return--from locations as diverse as Ghana, Peru, and Scandinavia--with knowledge, stories, and advice that they pass on to the campus community. Recently, students from a spring study trip to Mexico were inspired to bring to Stanford the musical group Los Tigres Del Norte. The group--who regularly packs stadiums in Latin America--shared with the GSB the inspiration behind its Grammy-winning music.

Watch the video of Los Tigres' visit. You can also learn more about the GSB's Global Study Trips on our website.

Alumni Events Around the World

The relationships that you form at the Stanford Graduate School of Business are close and long-lasting--one of the benefits of our small class size. Our active alumni chapters are evidence of this, with events both formal and informal taking place all over the world.

On 7 June, GSB alumni and newly admitted students gathered in Mumbai at the Taj Mahal hotel for a discussion with Rakesh Mohan, Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of India. As Deputy Governor, Mohan is in charge of monetary policy, financial markets, and economic research and statistics for India's central bank.

Mohan's visit, which was sponsored by the GSB India alumni chapter, featured extensive Q&A. Attendees traveled from areas such as Bangalore and Kashmir to hear the presentation. For those of us who couldn't make it to the event, Mohan will be a visitor at the Stanford Center for International Development this fall.
