Africa is at the forefront of significant global economic growth and opportunity. Stanford GSB is excited to contribute to the region’s human and economic development by educating leaders committed to making an impact on the continent.
The Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program pays for tuition and associated fees (approximately US $150,000) for citizens of African countries with financial need who wish to obtain an MBA at Stanford GSB. Stanford will award up to eight Stanford Africa MBA Fellowships annually.
Within two years of graduation from Stanford GSB, Stanford Africa MBA Fellows are required to return to Africa to work for at least two years in a professional role that contributes to the continent’s development.
