The Stanford Senior Executive Leadership Program is one of the most fascinating education programs I’ve ever studied. The curriculum is inspiring and intensive, and the classes are highly interactive with cross-functional knowledge and leadership elements. In particular, the "rolling-basis" design of the program is very innovative which not only allows the flexibility for us to cope with our hectic work schedule, but also creates more dynamics in the class discussion with new classmates in each module.
Through the program, I have gained more in-depth knowledge on corporate governance and crisis management which I found very useful in my work. I found the board room discussions and case studies impressive and these have strengthened my leadership and management skills. I also treasured a lot the strong business network within the student community as I have met many classmates from different background and nationalities, all in senior management roles.
I would definitely recommend this program to those who would like to climb up their career ladders by assuming broader responsibilities and leadership roles. The program will facilitate us to identify and analyze critical issues which contributed to the success of management decisions.”
