The Directors’ Consortium offers corporate board members the benefit of a research-based, comprehensive approach to the complex decisions they must make. In light of regulatory changes and reduced public confidence, becoming an educated board director is a necessity, not an option. Now more than ever, directors need to understand their fiduciary, legal, and ethical oversight responsibilities—the bar has been raised for all directors. Boards must focus on performance, not conformance. The result of an unparalleled academic partnership, this program combines powerful ideas and strategic insights to deliver an incomparable executive learning experience for corporate board members.
Faculty members from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Stanford Law School, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth harness their knowledge, research, and expertise to provide a dynamic, cross-disciplinary executive program focusing on the role of directors in driving and sustaining corporate success even in uncertain times. Both new and experienced board members will gain leading-edge strategies, frameworks, and best practices for making crucial board decisions in a changing environment.
Public confidence in corporations has reached an all-time low and the role of board director has become even more challenging and demanding. The Directors’ Consortium leverages the world-renowned research of three universities to address the fundamental issues surrounding corporate governance. The program delivers the latest thinking and empirical research in corporate law, accounting, finance, and board management with a multifaceted, integrated approach to investigating governance at both new and established companies.
