Leadership Training With SLOAN

June 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

The Sloan Master's Program has been in existence for over fifty-five years. The program is run through the Stanford University, and is primarily intended for business students who are pursue a Master of Science in Management degree. Originally, the program's openings were mostly occupied by executives who were sponsored by corporations. Now, however, the program has expanded its reach, and is currently accepting individuals who fund their own tuition.

Students who choose to enrol in this program will take their main courses in dedicated classrooms, where they begin learning from lessons taught by various faculty members of the Stanford Graduate School of Business. It is not uncommon for prominent government leaders, CEO's, and many other influential people in the business world to make guest appearances during certain classes, in an attempt to share their knowledge and experience with the students.

A recent change to the Sloan Masters Program itinerary means that the length of the program has now been extended to a full twelve months. There are several reasons for the extra time being added. The business graduate program now offers a number of new core classes. They also thought that it would be a good idea to allow students to take a wider variety of elected courses if they so choose, and extending the length of the school term help to accomplish that. There is also a new special set of programs in which Fellows of the program share some of their expertise at dealing with managerial situations, and how to best confront the various issues that inevitably arise with them. All of these new changes will begin to take effect during the 2012-2013 school year.

A typical Sloan Masters Program day at starts at 8:00 AM, but students who are especially ambitious may choose to wake up early and join one of the group study meetings that run from 6:00 to 8:00 AM. From there, there are two blocks of classes, each one of them usually lasting for two hours. There is a lunch break at noon, and then classes resume until 5:00 PM. This is when the regularly scheduled classes normally end, but due to the highly competitive nature of business graduate schools, there is usually still a lot of studying to be done.

Upon completing this program, there are usually plenty of opportunities for career advancement. Former graduates can be found in at least thirty-four different countries across the globe, occupying various business positions while trying to put to use the lessons they learned from Stanford's graduate program.
