Stanford GSB launches entrepreneurship programme in Bangalore

California-based B-school, Stanford Graduate School of Business has started its first part-time Stanford Ignite certificate programme in innovation and entrepreneurship in Bangalore recently.

 

Aimed at non-business technical professionals, it employs Stanford GSB professors on the ground as well as faculty beamed in from Silicon Valley by high-definition educational technology. The course will teach innovators in India how to formulate, develop, and commercialise their ideas.

 

Scheduled to take place over nine weeks at the state-of-the-art Infosys corporate campus, the first part-time non-degree programme in innovation and entrepreneurship to be offered outside of Stanford, Stanford Ignite-Bangalore has enrolled 41 professionals and meets on weekends and 2-3 evenings each week through October 12.

 

“For this first foray away from our home campus we are leveraging technology to bring our world-class faculty into the classroom with the sophisticated technological capabilities of our host, Infosys,” said Yossi Feinberg, Faculty Director, Stanford Ignite and John G. McCoy- Banc One Professor of Economics, Stanford Graduate School of Business.

 

The site of the first in a series of Stanford Ignite programmes to be offered around the globe, the Bangalore programme is designed to deliver the same highly personal and innovative instruction that technical professionals and students at Stanford experience.

 

Participants expect to learn core business skills and experience working in a team to evaluate and develop ideas into a business pitch.

 

Stanford Ignite will be offered to a European audience for the first time in Paris through Stanford Ignite-Polytechnique September 19–November 17, and in China in 2014. The programme also is offered at Stanford.
