The Stanford Graduate School of Business (also known as Stanford Business School or
Stanford GSB) is one of the professional schools of Stanford University, in Stanford,
California. It is one of the leading business schools in the United States.

The Stanford Graduate School of Business offers a general management MBA degree and
thus does not offer degrees in specialized areas such as finance or marketing, although it
does offer certificate programs in public management and global management. The school
also offers the Sloan Master's Program, a full-time ten-month MS in Management for
accomplished mid-career executives and entrepreneurs, and a Ph.D. program. The school
also offers a number of dual degrees jointly with other schools at Stanford University
including Education, Engineering, Law and Medicine.
