"Learning from world-renowned professors and practitioners and interacting with peers from different countries have put me at ease with working in multi-cultural teams. Through courses in experimental methods, statistical analysis, data science, and regression analysis, I have developed core quantitative research skills directly relevant to my next career steps."

"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.
