Today’s business environment is more complex and regulated, especially for multinational companies doing business abroad. Increasingly, companies are looking for qualified managers who understand the global standards of corporate governance and the regulatory framework in which their company operates – especially if it is a publicly traded company.
Whether one does business in New York, Stuttgart or Beijing, it must be fair, transparent and honest. International managers will only be successful if they understand and adhere to local customs, while at the same time complying with global business practices in corporate governance. The two are certainly not mutually exclusive. It is the successful manager that can navigate potential conflicts while adhering to global standards and doing it in way that is appropriate with local customs.
Although compliance, legal and regulatory topics are a normal part of most EMBA curricula, there is not a program designed exclusively with compliance and corporate governance as a centerpiece – until now. Our newly developed Executive MBA Compliance and Corporate Governance addresses both the professional development as well as compliance issues in an origi¬nal, globally unique manner. In cooperation with three outstanding universities, we deliver world-class education of the highest standards. It is a groundbreaking program which will combine the best practices from around the world with a deep understan¬ding of how to do business successfully in China. Especially companies who continue to localize their operations and to recruit and to develop Chinese managers will be increasingly interested if candidates have had this kind of training or experience.
The success of companies on the global markets depends on the commitment and capability of their staff. In such a dynamic en¬vironment, the development of talents is a major task for every company. The EMBA in Compliance and Corporate Governance will enhance the capabilities of its participants as the next generation of leaders and top level managers in global business.
