Course Overview

The Corporate Governance Program gives executives and professionals who presently serve on corporate boards or are interested in doing so the information they need to flourish in their roles as stewards of shareholders who support the creation of long-term and sustainable wealth.

This program mixes academic research with a profound awareness of the evolving difficulties that boardrooms face by drawing on thought leadership from internationally renowned specialists at Columbia Business School and outstanding practicing directors.

The program has a special feature: a series of panel discussions solely devoted to hot topics in corporate governance, like CEO succession plans, shareholder activism, the disruptive effects of technology and cyber risk, and corporate social responsibility. Interactions between program participants and top US directors are facilitated by a Columbia Business School moderator.

This interactive curriculum is essential for both experienced and aspiring corporate directors and chief executives since it is fast-paced, dynamic, and practical. Attendees have the chance to share their own best practices while also gaining helpful advice from other board members. Participants leave this program with fresh perspectives and the refined skill set necessary to serve effectively, regardless of whether they are seasoned directors or newcomers to the boardroom.
