Define the future

Career support

Every student’s future is their own to shape. The Career Management Center (CMC) will help you better understand the shape it can take. Throughout your time in the MBA Program, you’ll be able to work with career coaches to hone in on your potential, identify your goals, explore career paths, and prepare yourself for interviews and opportunities. And CMC support continues after you leave the GSB campus, with resources and tools available throughout your long and fruitful career.

Determining your path forward; adjusting along the way

Did you know? About ⅔ of Stanford GSB students switch careers. CMC career coaches can help you find the right path during your time at Stanford, and help you make informed decisions when passions or circumstances change.
