Registration is now open for winter information sessions and class visits at Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). In a recent post to the Stanford GSB admissions blog, Admissions blogger Ari Chasnoff invited prospective applicants to the MBA program to come see campus for themselves when the Class Visit Program resumes on January 13th.
Weekly information sessions will resume even sooner, on January 6th. Held each Monday and Friday, these 90-minute-long sessions feature MBA admissions officials providing an overview of the Stanford GSB MBA program and admissions process. Registration for information sessions is required.
Interested applicants can register now for either an information session, a class visit or both. Stanford Admissions asks that only those seriously considering applying to the MBA program register for a class visit due to space constraints. Only one class visit is available per quarter, and visitors are required to stay for the full duration of the class and asked to refrain from participating in the class.
Tours of the Knight Management Center also will resume on January 13th, along with class visits. These 30-minute, student-led tours depart on Mondays and Fridays at 12:15 p.m. from the Bass Center, following the weekly information sessions. Registration is not required for these tours – just show up.
While Stanford GSB encourages all who can to visit campus as a means of getting to know the MBA program better, 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,” reads the MBA Admissions Blog.
