Use compensation capacitor. Look up pole splitting which uses Miller effect on the capacitor.

By constructing current mirror circuit using op-amp 741 through compensation resistor at the feedback side. Finally the input and output of the op-amp gets compensated.

Using Miller compensation. A compensation capacitor across the 2nd stage to create pole splitting. A series resistor to the cap might be needed to solve the rhp zero problem
