Stanford University – 2015 Rankings



Stanford Graduate School of Business: Stanford University
It’s no surprise that the Cardinal are at the top of our list. Stanford boasts the lowest acceptance rate (7%), the lowest student to faculty ratio (4:1), and places near the top in executives at public funds. It is one of the most diverse programs, not only in student profile, but in its offering of specializations. It is adjacent to one of the largest consortia of tech companies on the planet in Silicon Valley. Stanford Graduate School of Business’s endowment has risen to 1.3 billion, with the university currently having the fourth largest endowment, at 21.4 billion. It ranks only behind Yale, the University of Texas System and Harvard. With a large, beautiful campus, Stanford provides more than opportunity; it provides a serene setting to combat the most demanding and rewarding program a university can offer.


Notable Alumnus: Suyi Kim, Head of Private Equity Asia, at the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board.
