Registration Begins for Fall Campus Events at Stanford Graduate School of Business
In a recent post to the Stanford MBA Admissions Blog, Admissions Coordinator Brad Lindeberg announced that online registration has begun for fall class visits and information sessions at the Palo Alto school.
Events will begin on Monday, September 28th, Lindeberg wrote. Information sessions will be held on Mondays and Fridays from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature admissions representatives providing a detailed overview of Stanford’s distinctive MBA program and admissions process. Presentations will include a question-and-answer session with current students. Advance registration is required.
Class visits, meanwhile, will be offered on Mondays and Fridays at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.; on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.; and on Thursdays at 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.
Advance registration for class visits is required, and Stanford GSB asks that only students who are seriously considering applying to the Stanford MBA program participate due to space constraints. An admissions officer will meet prospective applicants in the MBA Admissions Office 10 minutes before the start of the class and escort them to the appropriate building and classroom, answering any questions they may have along the way. Each class is scheduled to run for one hour and 45 minutes, and visitors are required to stay for the full duration of the class.
The Admissions Office recommends registering for class visits a couple of weeks in advance. The above times are for the fall quarter schedule (October and November). Additional class visit opportunities may be added as the Stanford GSB academic calendar is finalized.
“While we encourage you to visit the Stanford GSB and get to know our program better, a campus visit is neither required nor expected,” Lindeberg clarified. “Out of fairness to all applicants, we do not give preferential treatment in the admission process to those who have visited the GSB,” he added.
