Leadership and Corporate Accountability

by Paul M. Healy


This course focuses on the responsibilities of companies, their leaders, and their boards. Its aim is to deepend students' understanding of the economic, legal, and ethical dimensions of these responsibilities and to provide practical guidance on driving performance that delivers on all three dimensions. These situations have the potential to define, for good and bad, the careers of executives involved, and to determine the sustainability of their firms. Through a series of difficult dilemmas set in different regions of the world, the course builds a framework for decision-making and explores the elements of effective governance.
