What I like: The people are high caliber but also genuinely nice, very open and accepting, the size of the class, the closeness (spiritually and physically) to Silicon Valley and the tech industry, and the leadership learning opportunities. Other things that stood out are the GSB facilities and the opportunities within the university--outside the business school.
There is an emphasis on personal development and openness within the community, which enables students to learn and grow, connect deeply with classmates, develop a better sense of their values, better understand themselves, and develop better interpersonal skills.
The connections I have with students and alumni has clearly changed the course of my career in a positive way. It has enabled me to start a business and has pointed me on a trajectory of success.
The community: both my classmates who are the best part of the program and the alumni network in Silicon Valley which is unparalleled and who are incredibly responsive and happy to meet even at the CEO level.
GSB and Stanford as a whole is an incredible place--on any given day we have CEOs and senior leaders of startups and Fortune 500 companies alike dropping by to speak, teach a class, or just hang out and mingle with students. The education I've received has been fantastic. The friendships and connections I've made with classmates and the entire Stanford community will last a lifetime.
There is an overwhelming emphasis on entrepreneurial career tracks, to the point of over 50% of the class starting companies by the end of the second year.
The worst thing about the GSB is that it is only two years! It has been an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience.
There is too much focus on starting your own company and not enough on a professional job search.
The people - plain and simple. The program was great, professors were solid, but the people made this program what it was. I couldn't be more excited to work with these peers for the next 30 years and think the network I've developed while at Stanford will be more valuable then I expected when I entered the program.
There are unlimited opportunities to meet very inspiring people.
