The Stanford LEAD Experience

Forget everything you know about online learning. The LEAD learning model is a global, social, and virtual experience unlike any other.

Stanford LEAD certificate programs are neither solitary nor passive. Yes, the programs are virtual, but highly social, too. Collaboration is required. Faculty and peer-to-peer feedback is direct and personal. You’ll interact with Stanford GSB faculty, as well as the Stanford LEAD coaches, course facilitators, and program team, all of whom are available to support your learning journey. You’ll benefit from diverse perspectives and organizational experiences from your global community of peers. And you’ll engage more deeply with faculty and fellow learners than you’d ever think possible in an online program, creating meaningful connections and a rich community.

Whether you are interested in a Corporate Innovation Program or a Personal Leadership Program, Stanford LEAD will help you Learn, Engage, Accelerate, and Disrupt.
