There are a bunch of things that are necessary but need to be more to get into Stanford University. In that category would fall solid academic background, good GMAT, decent extracurriculars, etc.

If you go to IIT or Stephen’s, or a well-known school is a good thing. The GMAT of 730–760 is good. A strong GPA also helps a lot. Note only 6% of applications are accepted for the MBA program at Stanford every year, so the competition is very high. 

Indian students can apply if they meet one of the following eligibility criteria:

- Completed a 4-year UG degree with first class in a relevant field from a recognized institution.

- You need to prove English proficiency through IELTS/TOEFL/any equivalent test to get admission to this program with high scores. 

- The average cumulative high school GPA of students admitted to Stanford University is 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

- Overall, a high GMAT score, impressive UG transcript, elite credentials, and good LORs can boost your chances of admission.

 Required Document List -

Online Application: Students must submit an online application form at the official website.
Application Fee: Students need to submit their application fees.
Statement of Purpose: Reasons or intentions for pursuing studies in this program, including a description of prior experience.
3 Letters of Recommendation: Three letters of recommendation are required; one letter must come from an academic source, although Stanford prefers at least two. Recommendations must be submitted online. 
Official GRE Test Scores: Students must submit their GRE Test Scores.
ELP Scores: Students must submit their English language proficiency scores like IELTS, TOEFL, or other test scores.
Also, Stanford Business School is recognized as the leading MBA college by QS world Rankings 2022 for MBA programs. MBA at Stanford Business School costs around INR 60 lakh, which can be expensive for Indian students. That is when Stanford Reliance Fellowships for Indian students come into action. The scholarship program applies only to MBA programs at Stanford Business School for two years. There are three scholarships available every academic year.
