Class Visits, Info Sessions Resume at Stanford Graduate School of Business
On Monday, September 6th, prospective applicants to the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) may begin to register for fall class visits and information sessions at the school. These events will resume on Monday, September 27th.
In a post to the Stanford GSB Admissions Blog, Admissions Coordinator Joe Sicora underscored that while the GSB encourages prospective applicants to visit as means of getting a real feel for the school and its culture, campus visits are neither required nor expected. “Out of fairness to all applicants, we do not give preferential treatment in the admission process to those who have visited the GSB,” he wrote.
For those who are able to schedule a visit to campus, information sessions take place on Mondays and Fridays at 11:45 a.m. Representatives from the MBA Admissions Office will provide a detailed overview of the MBA program and the admissions process and field questions from attendees as part of this 75-minute session. Registration is required. Check the Stanford GSB registration system for event availability.
Class visits, meanwhile, can be scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from September 27th through November 19th. Due to high demand, the GSB asks that only those who are seriously considering applying to the Stanford MBA Program participate in the class visit program. Requests for specific classes cannot be accommodated, and applicants are limited to one visit per quarter.
Be advised that class visit spaces fill quickly, especially in the fall quarter. Advance registration is required, and the admissions office recommends reserving a space a few weeks in advance using the online registration system.
