[Study Abroad] Stanford opens doors to younger applicants
Latest Updated by 2006-10-19 10:54:43

Stanford Graduate School of Business has lowered its age requirement for Chinese applicants, and will now start receiving undergraduate applications, Oriental Morning Post said Oct 17.

 

Stanford's new policy was announced on Friday (Oct 13) in Shanghai, following the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, which said a short time ago that they greatly encourage Chinese applicants with less than two years of work experience.

 

Seda Mansour, a vice director with the Stanford business school's recruitment office, said the school focused more on an applicants quality of work experience rather than the length of work period.

 

"Our school welcomes undergraduate applicants with outstanding experience," Mansour said. But they have to finish their college education before they go to Stanford.

 

Mansour brought the latest individualized courses to Shanghai. In the new schedule, each class has 15 students, rather than the original 40 to 50 students. The school has also hired more experienced professors, with the total number increasing by 5 percent to 10 percent.

 

The new course includes more international exchanges and focuses on developing students' leadership and communication skills.

 

Meanwhile, the school will offer scholarships equal to one third of the tuition fee and student loans for the remainder.

 

"The school will pay off the loans of students from developing countries as long as they go back to serve their home countries after finishing their studies in the United States," Mansour said.
