An article up on “Bloomberg BusinessWeek” paints a portrait of the value of a Stanford MBA. Written by Shahien Nasiripour the piece (“Why Stanford MBAs Earn the Most“) focuses on how Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, ranked second — after Harvard Business School — in the latest “Bloomberg BusinessWeek” ranking of top MBA programs, graduates folks who out-earn their counterparts at every other MBA program in America.
Writes Nasiripour, “Silicon Valley’s culture and Stanford’s apparent success in making that culture its own may be the biggest reasons that Stanford grads out-earn their peers…Among top-50 MBA programs, Stanford has the highest rate of entrepreneurship, Bloomberg Businessweek survey data show. At the typical business school, some 3 percent of recent MBAs start a business upon graduation. At Stanford, it’s about 16 percent, a rate that’s held relatively steady over the last five years, says Maeve Richard, an assistant dean and director of the school’s career center.”
We’ve written quite a bit in the past about the entrepreneurial spirit at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. But that doesn’t mean that admissions officers for Stanford’s GSB are only looking for entrepreneurs. In fact, they’re not only looking for entrepreneurs. They get arguably too many entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs. After all, when folks who want to be game-changing entrepreneurs think of an MBA program, they tend to think of Stanford. And as our successful Ivy Coach Stanford MBA applicants know well, we like to zig when others zag. We’re all about that zig.
