Our mission is to create ideas that deepen and advance our understanding of management and with those ideas to develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who change the world.
We seek to attract faculty and students with high leadership potential and engage in an academically-rigorous, research-supported, mutually-responsible learning process, enhanced by uncommon levels of interdisciplinary scholarship and community engagement. Classes are conducted only on a full-time residential basis in an intimate-scale environment, and take full advantage of the assets of Stanford University and its surrounding communities. The impact of our ideas and our students extend globally in meaningful ways.
The following values are widely shared in the Stanford Graduate School of Business community and provide the context within which the School strives for excellence in achieving its goals.
- Believing in the power of ideas and intellect;
- Striving for excellence in all we do;
- Acting with integrity;
- Exhibiting compassion and respect for others; and
- Taking ownership of one's actions.
