Stanford is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, south of San Francisco, and there is no better place to study business.

The wine country of Napa and Sonoma Valleys is an easy drive from campus for weekend tastings or access to wine industry leaders.

Headlands, coves, rolling meadows, and a rich underwater habitat make Point Lobos, just south of Monterey and Carmel, a place of natural beauty.

Hiking, swimming, biking, boating, and fishing make Lake Tahoe the perfect summer vacation spot.

Silicon Valley & the Bay Area

This is where innovation happens. Where thinking critically, challenging assumptions, and changing the rules of competition are not only encouraged, but also expected.

You will enjoy close proximity to the coastal beauty of Monterey, the fertile vineyards of the Napa Valley, the vibrancy of the city of San Francisco, and the endless innovation of Silicon Valley. The Bay Area is the ideal place to come to be inspired and transform your future.

While your days and nights will be full during an executive education program, you can add on a vacation on either end to experience more of California.
