Hi! I just graduated from undergrad and started my past-time MS in MS&E at Stanford, but want to transfer to GSB. I’m a chemE and just started my first full-time job as a food tech consultant engineer. I’m passionate about food-tech entrepreneurship, so I am eager to start my business school journey!
Since I’m already a grad student at Stanford in a different program that wants to transfer, would that negatively affect me? Would it be a better idea to add the MBA to my MS in MS&E? Also, would my minimal work experience affect me as well? I had 5 internships in undergrad & would only have 1 year of full-time experience if accepted for 2024.

Big Life Wins:
One of my biggest wins was my acceptance to the Stanford MS&E master’s program. I’m super passionate about leadership, so I’m grateful that all my prior experiences demonstrated that enough to get me accepted. I was super involved on campus through various student-led organizations and research projects.
Post MBA Goal:
In the short team, I am hopeful to transfer to the MBA program, so I can gain the necessary skills to lead/join a clean food tech startup. In the long term, I want to work in the venture capital space to support innovators. The reason I wanted to shift from MS&E to MBA is that the MBA program is much longer.
