"Beyond the relationships I made, I was also able to take a diverse array of classes pertinent to my career goals. I am especially grateful that the program gave me the flexibility to take machine learning and business school classes, in addition to my education theory, practice, and research classes."

“I believe Stanford GSE is the place where I will be immersed in a culture that lets me take risks, and discover new ways of thinking. I am ready to make a difference!” That was the last paragraph of my Statement of Purpose for the MA Program (ICE). Now I have the certainty to say that I was right.

"Before coming to Stanford, I never imagined that I would come to enjoy quantitative research methods. The excellent and supportive learning environment at the GSE enabled me to try new things, like learning coding and taking many quantitative methods courses. As a mixed-methods researcher, I focus on organizational change and social transformation in developing countries, looking specifically at the development of the non-profit sector."
