MS Admission

Applicants to our MS program are expected to have an engineering degree, or a related quantitative degree that requires differential calculus of several variables.  Additional course work in general programming, statistics, and economics is preferred.  Applicants looking for a one year business degree should explore the MSx program offered at the Graduate School of Business.

The application deadline for our master of science program is 11:59pm PST on January 17, 2017.

You may view your application status and decision on your application activity page. Log back into your online application, and click on "Review Your Activity".

Applicants are notified of decisions by early March.

Current Stanford undergraduate students wishing to apply should apply using the coterm instructions.

Current Stanford graduate students wishing to apply to the Master of Science program in Management Science and Engineering should apply online using the Instructions for New Students, except that it is not necessary for current Stanford graduate students to resend hard copies of transcripts or resend official test scores, as we already have those from the first application. Please do add your Current Stanford degree onto your application, and upload your current Stanford transcript (even if there are not yet any grades reported).
