Curriculum

Where do you want your social impact organization to be in five years, and what will it take from you and your team to get there?

Leveraging the depth of expertise of Stanford GSB’s faculty, the Executive Program in Social Entrepreneurship exposes you to leading-edge research in strategy and organizational behavior so you can strengthen and develop your organization across all business units.

Program highlights include:

Strategy and Organizational Design

Take a look at how organizational design affects the execution of an organization’s strategy and reflect on a framework for thinking about organizational design.

Design Thinking Bootcamp

Experience design thinking — a human-centered, prototype-driven process for innovation — through a hands-on exercise, after which you’ll work in small teams to craft solutions to different design challenges.

Storytelling

Learn the elements of successful stories and how when data and story are used together, you take your listeners on a journey where they are moved intellectually and emotionally from one perspective to another.

Scaling Up

Understand what it takes to spread a mindset, not just a footprint, as a program or organization expands, and glean best practices from leaders and teams who successfully spread constructive beliefs, behaviors, and practices.

Who should attend

  • Experienced leaders of social initiatives or organizations.
  • While the educational and professional backgrounds may vary across participants, all attendees hold a high impact role at their organization
