SEP has more than lived up to my expectations. The professors are the foremost thinkers in their fields and my fellow students brought tremendous experience from a wide range of industries. The robust nature of the coursework, activities, study groups, and individual conversations along the way allowed me to push myself both personally and professionally, maximizing my future contributions in the workplace.

SEP gave me tremendous exposure to executives in diverse industries from all around the globe allowing me to learn from them within Stanford's rigorous academic setting and in compelling discussions outside the classroom.
President and Chief Executive Officer
SEP really helps put a career in focus. All of us left with ideas that have powered us through the year, and will last for years ahead. And most important, we formed a lasting bond. The rule in our class is that if you travel to the vicinity of a classmate, you've got to give him or her a call, and get together for lunch, dinner, or a drink.

I left SEP with confidence and exuberance. I gained a new global perspective that was not only induced by the highly qualified and seasoned faculty, but also was expanded by the interaction I had with my classmates, who came into the program after already achieving much success in their careers. SEP is truly a professional and personal growth experience—an opportunity to step out of your day-to-day life and focus on learning, networking, and expanding your horizon.
