Programme Features

  • The Stanford Graduate School of Business (SGSB) aims to take students through a personal transformation rather than create an MBA. The course does this by focusing on three key areas; personal leadership and development, critical analytical thinking, creativity and innovative spirit.
  • The course runs for two years. In the first year students choose modules in General Management Perspective and Foundations. Students must also enroll on the course’s Global Experience Requirement. In the second year students have a broad choice of electives which will serve to strengthen development areas. SGSB uses a range of techniques on the full-time MBA including traditional case studies, global study trips, simulations, role plays, immersion internships and research opportunities.
