The school offers outstanding management education to about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students each year who come from around the world to study in one of its six degree-granting programs. The school has 40,000 alumni. The school's mission is "to develop leaders who redefine how we do business." The school's distinctive culture is defined by four defining leadership principles:
We lead by championing bold ideas,
taking intelligent risks and accepting sensible failures.
This means speaking our minds even when it challenges convention.
We thrive at the world's epicenter of innovation.
We make decisions based on evidence and analysis,
giving us the confidence to act without arrogance.
We lead through trust and collaboration.
We are a community designed for curiosity and
lifelong pursuit of personal and intellectual growth.
This is not a place for those who feel they have learned all they need to learn.
We shape our world by leading ethically and responsibly.
As stewards of our enterprises,
we take the longer view in our decisions and actions.
This often means putting larger interests above our own.
