Career Impact for Sloan Fellows

Whether you are looking to accelerate your journey along your current career path or transition to a new one, the Stanford MSx Program will make an enormous impact — both while you are on campus and throughout the life of your career.

Some Sloan Fellows are inspired to start a new venture. Others change their trajectory, industry, or geography. Still others use this experience to advance in their organization. Along the way, they receive support and guidance from the Stanford GSB Career Management Center, faculty members, and our vibrant alumni community.

Career Support

Finding a job is not the endgame; rather, it is about discovering how and why you want to make an impact, and realizing your potential. We will work closely with you as you build the skills you need to live the life you imagine.

Career and Life Vision Program

Learn to articulate your core values, limiting beliefs, and envisioned future through reflection and small group discussions. To help you continue this journey of self-reflection, we also offer peer group counseling and one-on-one coaching sessions.

Stanford LEAP 360°

Prior to your arrival, you will complete a 360° leadership assessment that provides a launchpad for you to think deeply about your own beliefs, values, and skills as a leader. Executive coaches will then help guide your academic, career, and personal life choices throughout the year.

Industry Insider Advising Program

Meet directly with industry insiders: alumni who have deep experience in areas such as technology, startups, private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, and more.

Workshops
