Application

The MCiM program will accept applications for the 2025-2026 cohort starting on September 2024 (official date coming soon). Candidates who are accepted into the upcoming 2025-2026 cohort will begin their studies on campus in June 2025 (summer quarter).

Our program runs from summer quarter through spring quarter, for a full year (12 months). We are a cohort-based program with a set curriculum, meaning students are not able to begin the program off-cycle. 

Because MCiM starts in June 2025, you will be selecting the entry term Summer 2024-2025 to be considered for the 2025-26 cohort. Candidates must submit their application for the MCiM program via the Stanford graduate application portal.

Our MCiM staff team is always available for prospective applications with questions. Please reach out to us at mciminquiry@stanford.edu; someone from our team will respond to you within a few days.
