The Stanford GSB social innovation curriculum educates leaders to spearhead global social and environmental change.
The curriculum provides students the opportunity to focus in a particular field, such as economic opportunity, environmental sustainability, health, or education. They can also shape their academic efforts based on their preferred approach to social impact: e.g., responsible business, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit leadership, social impact funding, or public policy.
