Learn. Engage. Accelerate. Disrupt.

You pioneer new ways of thinking. You challenge the status quo. You seek out knowledge beyond traditional methods. At Stanford Graduate School of Business, we do the same. We have redefined the boundaries of learning to create an online experience with the academic rigor, world-class faculty, and innovative frameworks for which Stanford GSB is renowned.

Our approach gives you the freedom to master new skills in an interactive and flexible online format. It lets you engage with a highly-selective peer group to inspire innovation and explore fresh ideas. And it allows you to experiment with new learnings to address your specific business challenges.

The result: deeper learning and a longer-lasting impact on you and your organization. And, a prestigious Stanford GSB Certificate to demonstrate your leadership in driving positive change.

Overview

Which innovative ideas will deliver the greatest impact? How do you overcome organizational barriers to change? What will it take to move from idea to implementation? The Stanford LEAD Certificate: Corporate Innovation gives you the strategic business tools and techniques to accelerate change and transformation in your organization.

The Stanford LEAD Certificate is an 8-course commitment: a comprehensive, in-depth experience combining 3 foundation courses and 5 individually-selected electives, designed to be completed over the course of a year. You’ll start with the key business fundamentals: finance, strategy, and critical thinking. Then, you’ll deepen your knowledge with the electives you find most relevant, selecting from options such as design thinking and the innovation process, building business models, and overcoming resistance to change.

Through a combination of self-paced video lectures, individual assessments, team-based projects, class-wide discussions, and ongoing peer and faculty feedback, you’ll learn how to drive innovation from within. Exchange ideas and collaborate on projects with small teams of like-minded, like-motivated peers. And engage with world-renowned Stanford GSB faculty, Silicon Valley leaders, coaches, thought leaders, and luminaries through regular live events, discussions, and facilitated feedback.
