New Delhi: Software major Infosys on Wednesday announced that it will collaborate with Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) to create a comprehensive executive education programme.
As part of the agreement, Stanford GSB will team with senior Infosys executives to design and deliver a customised strategic leadership development programme for the company's executives, clients and partners, Infosys said.
The programme will include a suite of business management skills, as well as courses in corporate innovation processes to help Infosys balance business discipline and entrepreneurial spirit, it said in a release.
The office of Executive Education at Stanford GSB and Infosys will deliver the leadership programme through in-person and online instruction, as well as live sessions enabled by distance-learning technology, it said.
The initiative will include 200 executives who will each participate in a part-time, year-long program in groups of 40 over three years. Executives will be able to test and apply their learning to real business challenges in parallel.
