"Stanford’s ICE program distinguishes itself from other programs by its focus on ensuring that its students acquire the quantitative and qualitative skills to engage in high-quality education research in addition to expanding students’ breadth of knowledge on topics in education. "

"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."

“Being a student at Stanford allowed me to know people from all kinds of different backgrounds, which made me grow as a person and as a researcher. My cohort was full of very passionate people that I deeply admire, and I am looking forward to having them as colleagues in the field of education.”
