Advanced Corporate Governance - In-House

This in-house program on Advanced Corporate Governance was developed to answer questions about governance such as: What should the Board of Directors of a major public company be doing? How does its function differ from the day-to-day company management? What is the role of a non-executive director-especially where he or she is sitting on the board of many different companies and cannot give full-time attention to any single organization?

The course explores corporate governance from an international perspective by comparing practice and policy in the UK, the US as well as other countries. The program includes a number of case studies demonstrating how corporate governance functions in a variety of organizations. By the end of the course, participants will be able to answer the questions above and help their own organizations find the right way to structure and control their companies.
