Stanford GSB Reports A Record GMAT For Its MBA Class Of 2023

Kirsten Moss, assistant dean of admissions and financial aid for Stanford’s Graduate School of Business


“We’re pleased to welcome this class of talented students,” says Kirsten Moss, assistant dean and director of MBA Admissions and Financial Aid, in a statement. “Their diverse perspectives and unique life experiences will help create a dynamic cohort of leaders prepared to make their mark on a global world. The Class of 2023 is arriving at a moment of significant change in the world and has accomplished so much in their personal lives and careers. As the next generation of business leaders, we are excited to see them learn and grow, gaining the tools they will need to help solve some of our most pressing societal challenges.”

As is typical, there were generally few changes in the industry backgrounds of the incoming class of students. Most of the students with professional experience worked in investment management, private equity, or venture capital roles (20%). While the percentage remained exactly the same, however, there was a consequential drop in students from financial services to 1% from 5% in the previous year. Students with experience in consulting (19%, up from 17% a year earlier) and technology (16%, also up two percentage points from 14%). Other students served previously in a wide range of professions, including government, education and nonprofit; healthcare; arts, media and entertainment; consumer products and services; clean technology, energy and environmental; and the military.

The newest MBA students represent all manner of careers and interests. As undergraduates, 25% of the Class of 2023 studied engineering; 22% majored in economics; 15% were business/commerce majors; 15% studied social science; 14% majored in math or science; and 8% studied the arts or humanities.
