Registration Opens for Fall Visits at Stanford Graduate School of Business
Registration for fall class visits and information sessions at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) opens today, August 22nd. Events for prospective applicants will begin on Monday, September 19th.
In a post to the Stanford GSB Admissions Blog, Admissions Coordinator Madison Kawakami underscored that while the GSB encourages prospective applicants to visit as a 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, 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 the 75-minute sessions. Registration is required. Check the Stanford GSB registration system for event availability.
Class visits, meanwhile, can be scheduled beginning on October 3rd. 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.
