Programme Offerings

 

INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre

Our research, development programmes and outreach initiatives address the challenges and opportunities of developing boards as a mechanism for value creation.

Our programmes combine expertise from academics who study processes in different regions of the world with high-profile practitioners who bring to the classroom their wealth of experience. We contribute to a better understanding of supervisory board roles and practices, not only amongst board members themselves but also executives, government and society at large.

Corporate governance modules for
Master Programmes (MBA, EMBA, EMFIN)

 

MBA elective

As part of the Master in Business Administration (MBA) programme at INSEAD, students can choose to take the Corporate Governance elective to gain a deeper understanding of the frameworks and best practices of how corporate governance is enacted, structured, actively changed and will evolve. The knowledge and insights will benefit those who wish to serve as (or interact with) someone that performs a governance role (e.g, director, governor, advisor, executive) in any organisation.

Global Executive MBA module

There has been plenty of academic and professional attention and discussion on the corporate governance front, as a result of the financial crisis. Corporate Governance & Leadership is one of the course topics offered under the Key Management Challenges in the INSEAD Global Executive MBA (GEMBA). It takes a broad organisational view of governance, examining start-up as well not-for-profit organisations (where proper governance is on average more difficult), and of course dealing with governance inside the corporation.  The main focus in the subject is on governance as exercised by the board and the board’s impact on the organisation, the conditions for mutually satisfactory relations between board members, executive, shareholders and other stakeholders, and more generally for board effectiveness.

Executive Master in Finance Capstone

Fair process leadership and governance is one of the four courses covered in the Executive Master in Finance (EMFIN) Capstone curriculum. The course explores ways to create value and to overcome common as well as complex organisational issues at the top of the company by applying a “Fair Process” approach. By introducing a framework to define and operationalise the process, students will learn how to use it to create value and achieve alignment among board members and between the board and the CEO. This course is very strategic and is meant to provide a final overall view of the decisional process within financial organisations.
