Tips for applying to Stanford's MBA Program:

  • Want to see applicant's ideals, passions and aspirations. Looking for students who have been successful as a by-product of pursuing their passions and interests, as opposed to just pursuing success after success as a goal in itself.

  • They like community involvement and public-service-oriented people.

  • Have strong entrepreneurship program- may be good to discuss both specific entrepreneurial ambitions, and the way those ambitions will have a positive impact on society.

  • Demonstrate that you are interested in the academic experience of the Stanford MBA itself, rather than just the benefits afterwards.

  • Recommendations very important.

  • Like people who are humble, know how to listen, and lead by bringing out the best in those around them (see questions to recommenders).

  • School says your attitude toward learning is as important as your aptitude - i.e. want to see evidence of intellectual curiosity, passion about ideas, broad interests.

  • Advantageous to apply in Round 1.

  • In essays, show insight taken away from experiences, not just experiences themselves.

  • Somewhat of a 'touchy-feely' culture- students accept differences and are very supportive of each other. May be good to show that you are kind of person who will thrive in that environment.

  • Have numerous resources for people interested in social innovation (non-profit), including the Center for Social Innovation and the Public Management program. If interested in field, good to discuss how will make use of these resources.

  • Alumni are highly-involved. Helpful to show track record of involvement in alumni activities.

More about Stanford's MBA program:
The program offers other specializations as well: global management and public management. It also excels in entrepreneurship, non-profit management, and information technology management. Stanford places particular emphasis on the societal impact of a business school education. 
Stanford's program is the most selective in the world, accepting less than 10 percent of approximately 4,700 applicants per year. It is a mid-size program, with about 400 students enrolled in each class.
As a result, the school's alumni network numbers about 17,000, but is known for its outsize power and impact. Stanford's geographic proximity to Silicon Valley has led to excellent relationships and strong partnerships with the world's leading high-tech community.
Stanford prides itself on involving students in a significant way in the school's management. It boasts a relaxed and creative atmosphere, in part due to the school's policy of grade non-disclosure. Stanford is open to candidates who lack a business background and who have limited work experience.
Notable Stanford GSB alumni include: Robert Scott (former CEO and president of Morgan Stanley), Ken Powell (Chairman and CEO of General Mills), Howard Leach (former U.S. Ambassador to France), Robert Fisher (a director at Gap. Inc.) and Jim Kolbe (U.S. Congressman).
