Executive Program in Strategy and Organization

Executive Program in Strategy and Organization

Effectively diagnose and solve problems using proven frameworks for executing change in this multidisciplinary strategic management course.

Strategic management. Organizational theory. Personal leadership. The Executive Program in Strategy and Organization focuses on all three. Through pioneering multidisciplinary research from Stanford GSB faculty, you’ll learn how to create a strategy that aligns with your organization, culture, and the environment in which you compete. Experience two academically rigorous weeks packed with lectures, hands-on exercises, case studies, and discussion groups.

At Stanford, we focus on frameworks that help you think in new ways about the strategic challenges and opportunities you face — why some strategies work and others fail. We’ll examine the different aspects and approaches to strategy, while engaging in topics such as economic incentives, game theory, organizational culture, and being a successful leader. Rather than getting a checklist of best practices, you’ll come away with the skills you need to create powerful, winning action plans.

It’s a unique opportunity to learn things you won’t find in the news or business books, and immerse yourself with fellow executives in a learning environment that cultivates an innovative mindset to bring back to your organization.
