Stanford Graduate School of Business was founded in 1925 by a group of Californian business leaders organised by Herbert Hoover, an alumnus of Stanford University and 31st president of the US. Hoover wanted to stem the tide of students going east to get a business education, and Stanford was the first graduate school of business west of the Mississippi.
