Corporate governance is a field that concentrates on the relationship between boards of directors, stockholders, top management, regulators, auditors and other stakeholders of corporations. Of importance to this program is the recognition that boards of directors are essential to most systems of corporate governance. The board has the responsibility to ensure that corporations comply with modern ethical and economic standards and that management is accountable to financiers and shareholders. To understand the role of boards of directors in this process, the principles of corporate governance are discussed in this high-level course from economic, legal and financial perspectives. The program builds on many practical and recent examples of corporate governance (business irregularities and the 2008-2009 credit crises) in Anglo-Saxon, Continental-European and Asian financial markets.

This practical program focuses on participants using corporate governance as a means for companies to attract investments and reduce risks. To understand the internal corporate governance structure of corporations, participants work with tools available to improve the corporate governance structure of corporations. The program is particularly of interest to participants who would like to reflect on corporate governance practices of listed companies by understanding the latest international developments. The presentations are designed to encourage participation and debate of real life cases.
