It’s a Smart Way to Learn

With a mix of real-time, faculty-led lectures, guest speaker sessions, and case studies, the learning is comprehensive and immersive.

The online format gives you the added benefit of learning while doing, allowing you to test new approaches and apply new ideas. Content sessions are typically scheduled three days a week, so you can learn, absorb, reflect, and practice. And while the content sessions are best experienced live, we understand that personal and professional schedules can sometimes get in the way. Recordings will be made available upon request.

It’s More Social Than You Expect

This is not a sit back in your chair and listen-only experience. We’re bringing together technologies like Zoom, Slack workspaces for real-time communication, and Stanford’s learning management platform. 

Ask questions and exchange ideas with faculty and peers. Polls, breakout rooms, faculty office hours, group projects, virtual coffee chats, team building, and even fitness and well-being exercises are part of the holistic experience.

The result: You’ll have multiple opportunities to socialize, collaborate with other global executives, and expand your professional network.
