Our mission is to create ideas that deepen and advance our understanding of management and, with those ideas, to develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who change the world.

As a member of the Stanford Graduate School of Business community, students are expected to:

  • Engage intellectually. Demonstrate curiosity, question your assumptions, develop new insights, seek out diverse perspectives, and learn continuously about business and the world.

  • Strive for something great. Pursue meaningful goals, persevere through setbacks, and aim to achieve a better future through a substantial and sustainable impact on the world.

  • Respect others. Assume the best intentions, model empathy, and value differences. Act toward others with compassion and goodwill.

  • Act with integrity. Be honest, open, and fair. Deliver on your commitments and adhere to the highest principles.

  • Own your actions. Consider the consequences of your actions and take responsibility for the intended and unintended results.
