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.
