- [video] Participants and faculty team share their views on the CEIBS-Wharton Joint Programme: Corporate Governance and Board of Directors
The root problem of any enterprise can almost always be traced to the problem in its governance system and top management team. As globalisation accelerates, the biggest challenge facing Chinese business leaders is not the global competition in the product market, but that in corporate governance system. In particular, it should be emphasised that the competition in system differs from that in commodity market; and an effective system can only be built in a down-to-earth way instead of performing sleight of hand tricks.
The corporate governance structure reform sweeping the entire US in the past two decades has exerted remarkable influence on global corporate governance structure. Thanks to US’ demonstration and the enhancement of economic globalisation, the market-based British-American model of external corporate governance has gradually replaced the controlling-shareholder-based European and Japanese model of internal corporate governance, and become a foundation for many countries and international organisations in formulating governance standards. However, the British-American model and relative systems are based on a highly defused equity market, guided by shareholder value and with the board at the helm; While nowadays in China, the non-tradable shares reform has been basically completed, the equity ownership is still highly concentrated and the markets for corporate control are virtually nonexistent, not to mention the fundamental difference of economic and political institutional structure between China and western countries. To what extent are Western governance models appropriate for China and how should leaders of Chinese enterprises design their own corporate governance structure? This is not only an issue of vital importance for the survival of Chinese enterprises, but also a worldwide problem, the solution of which is worth a Nobel Prize. Therefore, four renowned experts from two world-famous business schools jointly designed this programme to help you out.
The programme is designed for the owners and top leaders of Chinese enterprises and enterprise groups, including the CEOs and board members of the public firms and firms under listing plans, as well as the CEOs and board chairperson, supervisors, and delegates of controlling shareholders of their non-listed parent groups, relevant government officials, institutional investors, as well as business owners and executives concerned with building effective enterprise system.
Comments From Participants
I’ve greatly benefited from the Corporate Governance and Board of Directors programme thanks to the faculty’s brilliant knowledge and experience, and the idea sharing and informative communication among participants. And, more importantly, the programme has sharpened my insight, which is an important intangible asset to me and could hardly be gained elsewhere. Equipped with the necessary knowledge and a sharpened insight, I’ll play a more effective role in corporate governance. Lots of thanks to CEIBS for having given me a valuable opportunity to update knowledge, broaden horizons and sharpen insight.

The programme provided the perfect combination of theory and practice. With the aid of case studies, all participants were involved in discussions and shared their ideas. This learning experience has a pretty significant impact on my career.
Johnson Matthey (Shanghai) Chemicals Limited
The Corporate Governance and Board of Directors programme is extremely useful for senior executives. Although the programme does not directly resolve all problems or challenges, it provides the mindset and framework to help one build the solution.
China Petrochemical Corporation
I came to the Corporate Governance and Board of Directors programme with a mission. Our company is facing some strategic adjustments, including change to the board structure; therefore, I feel the learning from this programme is especially significant. I have gained a deep understanding of the board structure, process flow and effective board operations all of which is useful for the development of our company board.

Coming to this programme at CEIBS is a process of reorganising knowledge. The part in the programme on strategic decision is very instructive for the board setting company strategies. Furthermore, the financial understanding gained during the programme is also quite important to the board of directors because it's not only a job responsibility of a director, but a legal requirement. Understanding of financial information will also allow us to better analyse the company's operating conditions.
