Stanford Business School

Posted by klocadmin in B-schoolsUS B-schools, on July 15, 2015

Stanford Business School is another school which is probably synonymous with the term ‘MBA’. 🙂

Stanford Business School began its reign as a fore runner in education back in 1925 when Herbert Hoover, a trustee, got together with a few others and decided to found the school. He was also the 31st President of the Unites States.

Stanford follows a “Change lives. Change organizations. Change the world” motto and has no doubt managed to do so, seemingly with ease. It has been associated with some famous alumni like Phil Knight, the Co-founder of Nike, and 19 Nobel Laureates who are associated with the brand name. It is also probably one of the few schools that can boast of a 5:1 student to faculty ratio. With such strong foundations, it is no wonder that they deliver quality education consistently! 🙂
