The art and science of leadership is practiced in an atmosphere of collaboration among the MSx Fellows, faculty, university, and the Silicon Valley society of entrepreneurs.
Small-size classes help students engage with their peers and faculty, and study groups facilitate leadership skill-building.
Programs are conducted both on campus and outside, within the US and in cities around the world.
Among the part-time programs is Stanford Ignite, a certificate course that equips participants with the skills required to make a success of entrepreneurial and “intrapreneurial” ventures.
Leadership accomplishments: Have you led a big or small group to achieve a common objective or target?
Demonstrated leadership qualities are vital if you wish to join the MSx cohort.
“Studying the art and science of leadership” is how Stanford describes the MSx program, the academic framework of which seeks to align with the university’s motto, “Change lives, change organizations, change the world.” MSx has a pedigree of over 50 years and used to be called the Stanford Sloan Master’s Program before GSB rebranded it midway through 2014.
The MSx program seeks to explore concepts and ideas that deliver good practices and inspired innovation.
Attitude as well as aptitude is important, and candidates should demonstrate a willingness to support others and help them improve.
They should also exhibit an ability to chart their way through difficult situations and environment while playing the role of leader.
