With a new emphasis on corporate governance spurred by recent legislation, boards of public companies are experiencing awareness and pressure to become active and involved with their fiduciary responsibilities. Not only are companies concerned with putting appropriate mechanisms in place, but boards must adopt new frameworks and new attitudes about their decision-making roles and new ways of fulfilling their obligations.
To address these critical issues, UC Irvine's Paul Merage School of Business, in partnership with FCD (Forum for Corporate Directors), is creating a program devoted to addressing ethical issues in Corporate Governance. This program will address specific governance issues that have not been systematically addressed in an integrated way. Our program will offer directors of public corporations and the executives who work with them the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the key strategic issues and challenges facing boards today.
Information about the program will be available soon. The new format will be ISS (Institutional Shareholders Services) approved.
While we are still in process of making decisions on new offerings in Corporate Governance, you may find future sessions on Corporate Governance of value to managers and directors concerned about the implications of new oversight guidelines for public companies.
