Stanford University selects nonprofit leaders from social and human services, health care, community development, arts, environment, and education organizations to participate in the Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders (EPNL).
This ten-day residential program, held at Stanford’s Knight Management Center, has been designed to further the professional development of current and future leaders in the nonprofit sector.
Relevant and Personal
Drawing on the leading-edge research and course offerings of the Stanford faculty, the program integrates conceptual knowledge with participants’ own experiences to generate powerful and practical insights about leadership and management.
The learning stems from a variety of activities, including classes, small group discussions, and individual study. Like the Stanford MBA Program, EPNL evolves as the faculty’s most current thinking and research keeps pace with the rapidly changing management environment.

Participant tuition is calculated on a sliding scale based on the operating budget of the organization the participant represents. Tuition includes all accommodations, meals, and course materials during the program.
