The recent call for improved corporate transparency is changing how businesses around the world operate. Companies must address conflicting demands from a variety of stakeholder groups including investors, customers, employees and governmental agencies. Increasingly, they face regulations and public scrutiny that challenges executive leadership and demands greater ethical, economic and business prudence.
Hosted in partnership with Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management, LCACH will give executive leaders of both regional and global companies the tools to enrich their strategic governance processes and lead their companies ethically and profitably in this era of increased accountability.
"We're looking forward to partnering with Tsinghua University to bring this new program to a wider audience,” said Das Narayandas, James J. Hill Professor of Business Administration and Senior Associate Dean and Chair of Executive Education and Publishing. “Our partnership with Tsinghua University has helped us develop a program tailored to address various global and China-specific strategic governance issues. The course provides best practices for handling these issues in the context of China’s economy, regulatory climate and social culture, as well as showing how companies can best navigate global markets.”
“When putting together the new program in collaboration with HBS, we realized that a study into ethics and social responsibility is not only a better choice, but a must for Chinese companies of today,” said Bin Yang, Professor of Business Strategy and Policy and chair of Leadership and Corporate Accountability—China . “An early move in taking this course will give forward-looking Chinese entrepreneurs a competitive edge in their journey ahead.”
Designed for executives in key decision-making roles at the divisional level and above in large established companies, LCACH will be particularly valuable for C-level executives, general managers, senior vice presidents, directors, heads of business units, and partners. Over the course of the program, executives will work with HBS faculty to examine their various responsibilities as decision makers and develop a system of checks and balances that promote productive strategy. Program curriculum is based on the highly successful Leadership and Corporate Accountability, a required MBA course for all Harvard Business School students.
"We draw upon research from a variety of disciplines including economics, law, psychology and organizational behavior to help executives holistically enrich their decision-making processes,” said Rohit Deshpandé, Sebastian S. Kresge Professor of Marketing and faculty chair of Leadership and Corporate Accountability—China. “Coupling this research with lessons from real-world companies, this program encourages executives to fully address leadership and accountability from new perspectives that may otherwise be harder to access amid the daily pressures of their jobs."
Leadership and Corporate Accountability – China will be presented in both Chinese and English with simultaneous translation. In addition to Harvard Business School’s renowned case study method, the program will also incorporate faculty lectures and group discussions.
Leadership and Corporate Accountability – China will run from May 27–30, 2014 and will take place at Harvard Center Shanghai. Please visit http://www.exed.hbs.edu/programs/lcach for complete curriculum details and to apply.
