One scholarship is offered each year for enrollment in the Stanford Sloan Master’s Program, a 10 ½ month, full-time program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Management.
One of three degree programs at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Stanford Sloan Program provides an ideal learning environment for successful mid-career executives who are preparing for greater levels of leadership and responsibility within their organizations, or who may be choosing a new career path. Stanford Sloan Fellows come from over 20 different countries, sharing personal and professional insights based on their years of significant work experience (minimum of 8).
