A Glimpse Inside the Lives of Nine Stanford Graduate School of Business MBAs

stanfordYou can learn what it’s like to be an MBA student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) straight from students themselves thanks to a cool feature earlier this month on the school’s MBA Blog.

Called, aptly, “A Week in the Life,” the feature includes nine profiles of students from the Class of 2015 sharing their day-to-day experiences over the course of a normal week at business school. The group includes four men and five women who came from around the country and the globe to pursue their MBA at Stanford. More than half of the students profiled are international, hailing from Brazil, Zimbabwe, China, India, South Korea and Argentina.

Each student shares his or her post-graduation goals, as well as a favorite GSB memory to date. Then, through brief journal entries and photos, they guide readers through a week’s worth of activities, painting nine different pictures of what student life can look like at Stanford.

Not surprisingly, the students’ pre-MBA experiences are as varied as the individuals themselves—one was a physician, another a consultant, a third managed international tours for the Czech Philharmonic. Likewise, their post-graduation goals run the gamut, from helping Argentina overcome its economic crisis to making healthcare more accessible globally to redefining the reality of Brazil.

Check out the Week in the Life feature for yourself. A quick and interesting read, it provides a good way to see if you could imagine yourself as an MBA at Stanford.
