Leadership and Design Thinking for Corporate Sustainability Challenges
Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 we have made the difficult decision to cancel the forthcoming XSFS002 Leadership and Design Thinking for Corporate Sustainability Challenges course that was scheduled to take place this September 2020.
If you’d still like to learn about sustainability from Stanford instructors, you can enroll in the online, self-paced XSFS110 Essentials for Business: Put theory into practice course, and take courses from our Energy Innovation and Emerging Technologies program. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. If you would like to receive information about future courses, please complete the "Request Information" form.
