Learn to lead with confidence in this rigorous, general management program for executives on the verge of achieving even greater things.

Executive Leadership Development is a comprehensive, experiential program that encompasses analysis to action — with an emphasis on the action. It’s a unique blend of intensive learning, immersive lectures, on-the-job challenges, and personal leadership development.  You will be able to apply what you learn to real-world business challenges and put new leadership skills into practice.

The carefully developed curriculum follows Stanford’s MBA Program across three key themes: business acumen, innovation, and leadership. You will begin developing your leadership style and effectiveness with Stanford’s proprietary 360º leadership assessment. Throughout the program, you will hone your personal leadership skills with three one-on-one coaching sessions that will keep you engaged and accountable long after you complete the program.

You will work closely with Stanford GSB faculty, and collaborate in small groups with highly motivated global peers to share business challenges, gain relevant insights, and develop a valuable network that extends far beyond the classroom.
