Why Stanford MSx

One year of accelerated, immersive learning.

One global cohort of experienced leaders.

One Master of Science in Management degree.

In the Stanford MSx Program, you will spend 12 months — from July to June — strengthening your skills, stimulating your curiosity, and building your confidence. It is a full-time, residential, general management degree program unlike any other. One year at Stanford can change everything.

Accelerated, Immersive Learning

Time matters. Especially at this critical juncture in your life and career. So we have created a rigorous and accelerated curriculum that leverages the very best of what Stanford GSB and the entire university have to offer. It combines core business fundamentals with the art and science of leadership, all taught by our tenured faculty members and renowned practitioners.

Designed for Experienced Leaders

Experience matters. Far more than titles. That is why the Stanford MSx Program is uniquely focused on ambitious, global leaders with a demonstrated record of accomplishment and intellectual curiosity. Whether senior managers of major global corporations, executives of social-sector organizations, government officials, or self-made entrepreneurs, your classmates — called Sloan Fellows — bring a diversity of life, leadership, and work experience that enhances discussions both in the classroom and around the dinner table. Sloan Fellows come to Stanford on their own, with a partner, or with their entire family, creating a rich and diverse community.

Innovation Is In Our DNA

Location matters. Not just because of our year-round sunshine and warm climate. You will be learning and living in one of the most vibrant and innovative ecosystems, encompassing Stanford University, Stanford GSB, and Silicon Valley. You will have access to a cutting-edge faculty with real-world experience advising many of the most successful global organizations, Stanford’s graduate schools and institutes, and leading business minds, right in our backyard.
