Program is lengthened to 12 months; now called "Stanford MSx"

Stanford University's Graduate School of Business has announced changes to its long-standing one-year Sloan Master's program.

The program (which is being officially rebranded as the "Stanford MSx") has been lengthened from ten months to twelve. The program now begins in July and ends in June.

In terms of the curriculum, the Stanford MSx will include a broader focus on leadership, using tools that the business school has developed through its executive education offerings.

Additionally, a wider range of electives will be offered to students, including a leadership-focused course called "Generative Leadership," and one on "Executive Communication Strategies."

The Stanford MSx is aimed at executive level participants: generally, students come to the  program with around 12 years of experience.
