In India's highly challenging economy marked by slowed growth, senior leaders are faced with complex and often contradictory demands from a range of stakeholders—among them customers, employees, investors, and governments. With an eye on strategies for leading your company through economic uncertainty, this program explores the legal, ethical, and financial demands that affect managerial decision making and prepares you to make ethically responsible, financially sound business decisions.
Emphasizing strategic governance, this program incorporates case studies of Indian and global companies as a way of exploring methods for managing the demands of external and internal stakeholders. You'll examine how leaders can manage companies ethically and profitably in the context of widespread public corruption and review the latest research in economics, law, psychology, and organizational behavior—equipping you to make the decisions that define your leadership.
Through case study examinations as well as in-depth discussions with faculty and peers, you'll investigate tools and techniques for interacting with stakeholders effectively. In the process, you'll strengthen your ability to make decisions that support your company's external community, internal operations, and bottom line.
Leadership and Corporate Accountability—India is ideal for executives in key decision-making roles at the divisional level and above in large established companies. It is particularly appropriate for C-level executives, general managers, senior vice presidents, directors, heads of business units, and partners. You will broaden your professional network through close interaction and shared experience with an accomplished group of global peers.
