Designed for Engagement
From the small class sizes to the high-caliber cohort, our programs are designed to promote deeper learning and engagement. Professors are available before and after their sessions to talk with participants and engage in the innovative, experiential learning for which Stanford is celebrated.
Lectures, business simulations, and small group discussions foster collaboration with peers from around the globe and across various functions, industries, and cultural backgrounds. During meals, study groups, and evening breaks, you will exchange ideas and perspectives from the day’s learning.
There is power in collaboration, especially when you are at Stanford, where seven world-class schools reside on a single campus. Many of our programs bring in faculty from Stanford Graduate School of Education, Stanford Law School, Stanford School of Engineering, Stanford School of Medicine, and the Hasso Plattner School of Design (d.school) to increase your exposure and enhance your experience.

Our collaborative educational process benefits from these diverse backgrounds, encouraging a range of perspectives and a range of approaches to real-world problems.
