Want to get a leading business qualification to fast-track your career but can't quit the 9-5? Apply for the part-time Stanford Ignite and get the world-class Stanford experience without the years of study or the trip to California.
If you're a working professional or a graduate student with a strong scientific, medical, or technical background, Stanford Ignite is for you. The part-time certificate programme has just landed in London, designed for innovators like you with great ideas but without the business training you need to achieve your entrepreneurial ambitions.
Over seven intense weekends, you'll learn core business skills, perfect your pitching and take practical steps to formulate, develop and commercialise your ideas.
Throughout the programme, you'll apply what you learn in the classroom to a team venture project. Learn to put theory into practice, develop a business plan with your peers, and work and network with like-minded innovative and driven people.
Taught by the Stanford Graduate School of Business faculty in London, as well as professors beamed to Canary Wharf from Silicon Valley, you'll get the same high-quality and hands-on instruction as you would on campus.
Guest speakers, business mentors and expert panellists will provide feedback throughout the venture building process.
Are you ready to ignite your entrepreneurial spirit?
Apply for Stanford Ignite now — you've got until 2 June to submit your online application for the autumn 2016 programme.
