Have you ever attended a show where the encore was as good as, if not better than, the performance?
An encore career can be like that, capping years of hard work and achievement with a new and energized mission. Except this time around, the work can be in an entirely different area — perhaps one you always wanted to pursue but couldn’t afford at the time, or maybe one that allows you to explore a new interest.
Many Stanford GSB alumni reach a point where they are ready for an encore. Here are some resources to support your next endeavor.
