Stanford Ignite-Polytechnique Program in innovation and entrepreneurship will utilize high definition technology to bring faculty from Silicon Valley into a TelePresence facility in Paris starting September 25. High-potential scientists, technologists, doctors and inventors from throughout Europe who seek to drive economic growth through entrepreneurship have until Monday, July 14 to apply.
A limited number of scholarships will be made available for admitted applicants who apply by Monday, June 30, and who demonstrate financial need.
The joint program between Stanford Graduate School of Business and École Polytechnique, one of Europe’s finest schools of engineering and science and one of the leading Grandes Écoles in France, will convene at state-of-the-art facilities at Cisco France, centrally located in Issy-les-Moulineaux with easy access to transportation.
Participants of the Stanford Ignite–Polytechnique program join a global network of high-impact innovators and entrepreneurs from Stanford Ignite programs deployed around the world including Bangalore, India; Santiago, Chile; and Beijing, China. These global participants have started more than 100 successful companies since the program was introduced at Stanford in 2006.
The program provides exposure to both the fundamentals of business and the practical aspects of identifying, evaluating, and moving business ideas forward. Classes draw on the same world-class Stanford faculty who teach in the MBA program. The curriculum is designed to deliver the same highly personal and innovative instruction that technical professionals and students at the Stanford Graduate School of Business experience – in a European dimension. École Polytechnique will enrich the program by bringing leading European executives, venture investors, legal experts, and lecturers to the program as guest speakers and mentors to provide real-world feedback on team projects.
For nonbusiness technical or medical professionals and graduate students
Intended for individuals who do not have graduate business training, Stanford Ignite–Polytechnique applicants must be currently enrolled students in a master’s, PhD, MD, or post-doctoral program studying non-business fields; or must be professionals with a minimum of a bachelor’s (BA or BS) degree from a regionally accredited institution. Advanced degrees preferred. Classes meet Thursday evenings, Fridays, and Saturdays, and additional meetings, as needed, for project work.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit all materials as soon as possible. A complete application will contain: the finished online application, a resume, a series of short essays, and two letters of recommendation. Tuition is 7 000€ and includes course materials, some meals, and program events.
