This corporate governance program is based
on the premise that there is no \"one best way\" for boards to operate.
Rather, each board must consider and develop practices that recognize
the unique needs of its company and management. We will examine not only
normal board duties, but also the challenges boards face in dealing
with the inevitable shocks and crises that arise in every company from
time to time.
By exploring a wide array of topics -
ranging from designing board structure, processes, and composition to
evaluating CEO performance and company strategy - you will learn how to
leverage board members\' time, knowledge, and insights, both in and
outside of meetings, so you can make better decisions for your company
and its shareholders.
Your Course of Study
Through focused lectures and in-depth case
studies, you and a group of distinguished peers will examine how
effective corporate governance boards build positive relationships and
efficient processes. You will explore the most relevant strategic and
organizational issues facing boards of directors today. Examples taken
from companies in diverse industries will drive home the need for
transparency, trust, and close cooperation between board members and the
Curriculum topics include:

What steps should you take to ensure your company complies with relevant regulations and laws?
How can your board prepare itself for
the inevitable unexpected events and crises that it may face, such as
activist takeovers, accounting fraud, and environmental disasters?
