Exec Ed

Corporate Directors Enterprise 2008:
Effective Corporate Governance

The UC Berkeley Corporate Directors Enterprise offers Directors and potential Directors of public, private and non-profit boards the opportunity to update their skills and knowledge. In a post-Sarbanes-Oxley environment, where increased visibility and shareholder activism prevail, it is vital that those who serve on boards reflect “best practices” knowledge to maximize their organization’s performance and to protect themselves and their organization from liabilities and lawsuits.

Our ISS accredited program brings together faculty from the Haas School and the Boalt School of Law; prominent Directors and Chief Executives of major corporations; and distinguished partners of accounting and corporate governance firms. MBA alumni with senior executive background are encouraged to apply.
