Corporate governance is a key topic that has recently started attracting more attention in business schools and among legislatures, with this trend only increasing. While there are different models for corporate governance, all of them aim at organizing the relation between company and stakeholders. Governance models start with Shareholder Wealth Maximization (SWM) that stresses owners’ rights, as applied mainly in the US and UK. Other methods of governance, applied in Germany or Japan for example, bring other stakeholders, such as the workforce and bankers strongly into play.

In addition to these models, this course also covers the reasons why board membership may be one tier or two tiers, and includes discussions about board structure, committees, their functions and duties, the audit committee and the appointment and remuneration committee. Other topics discussed are the role of the chairman and the effect of institutional investors.

Course Methodology

The course is built on presentations by the instructor and the participants and includes exercises and case studies to be discussed in the training.
