Introduction to Corporate Governance and Board Effectiveness course
Drawing on the Leadership Institute’s substantial research and practitioner work in this area, this elective offers an introduction to corporate governance combined with the topic of board effectiveness.
Students are exposed to a blend of taught and experiential inputs on governance and the often neglected topic of board dynamics, providing an opportunity to learn as well as build their capability to work as an effective board contributor, adviser or stakeholder. Students also have the opportunity to reflect on how the data generated by their leadership assessment stream can be used to inform a development plan to move them towards being "board ready" and/or increasing their effectiveness if they already are a member of a board.
This course complements existing offerings in the degree programme portfolio such as the Sloan Corporate Governance and Stakeholder Relations course, delivered by Harry Korine, Andrew Likerman, and Donal Crilly.
The Leadership Institute works with a number of student clubs and organisations, supporting and contributing to their efforts.
