With the emphasis on corporate governance spurred by constantly changing 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 creates programs concentrated on Corporate Governance topics. These programs will address various governance issues that have not been systematically addressed in an integrated way. Our programs 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.
We will continue to make decisions on new offerings in Corporate Governance and 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.
