STANFORD, Calif.–( BUSINESS WIRE )–May 20, 2003–The Stanford Graduate School of Business, in a new partnership with AeA (American Electronics Association), will offer an executive education program designed exclusively for high tech executives as part of the School’s catalog of executive programs.

The AeA/Stanford Executive Institute will be held August 10-22 at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. The intensive two-week program, held in conjunction with the Stanford School of Engineering, addresses specific problems and opportunities faced by general managers in technology-based businesses. Originally developed with the Stanford’s School of Engineering, the AeA/Stanford Executive Institute has 28 years of proven success and has more than 3,000 distinguished alumni.

“We are delighted to be in partnership with AeA as well as the School of Engineering,” said Gale Bitter, Associate Dean and Director of Executive Education at Stanford Business School. “By collaborating with AeA, the largest industry association of high tech professionals in the nation, we’re able to contribute to the executive development of this important technology community.”

The AeA/Stanford Executive Institute program will focus on marketing, finance and accounting, supply chain management, organizational culture, innovation, negotiation, and strategic management. In a dynamic classroom environment of technology industry peers led by senior Stanford faculty, participants will test ideas, analyze complex management issues, and learn about the fundamentals of leadership. Using case study analysis, the focus is on the process of choosing a course of action; there are no right answers.

The Business School’s teaching team includes faculty from the areas of strategic management, organizational behavior, negotiation, and management science. Faculty members from Stanford’s School of Engineering are also an integral part of the program.

Participants will:

— Build on decision-making disciplines in each of the major functional areas of a technology-based business.

— Learn best practices.

— Create new professional relationships with other executives and faculty to expand their network of relationship capital.

— Increase their awareness of the roles of general manager and corporate officer to prepare them for those positions.

— Acquire strategies for applying new business experience and knowledge to their company’s present and future business challenges.

Sessions will be held at the Business School and participants will stay on the Stanford campus in a private room at the state-of-the-art Schwab Residential Center, designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta in 1997, just a few steps from the School. Participants will have access to Stanford’s recreational facilities and dine with co-participants at the Residential Center. .
