  Directors’ Consortium

Directors’ Consortium
Three Universities. Three Days. One Big Opportunity.

Becoming an educated board director is a necessity, not an option, today because of regulatory changes and reduced public confidence. Boards must focus on performance, not conformance. Now more than ever, directors need to understand their fiduciary, legal, and ethical oversight responsibilities. The Directors’ Consortium offers corporate board members the benefit of a research-based, comprehensive approach to the complex decisions they must make. This program, the result of an unparalleled academic partnership, combines powerful ideas and strategic insights to deliver an incomparable executive learning experience for corporate board members.

Faculty members from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth are joined by top faculty from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford Law School, and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. This unique partnership harnesses faculty knowledge, research, and expertise to provide a dynamic, cross-disciplinary executive program focusing on the role of directors in driving and sustaining corporate success, even in uncertain times.

The Directors’ Consortium delivers the latest thinking and empirical research in corporate law, accounting, finance, and board management with a multifaceted, integrated approach to investigating governance at both new and established companies. Whether you are a new or an experienced board member, you will gain leading-edge strategies, frameworks, and best practices for making crucial board decisions in a changing environment.

Dates and Fees
November 6 - 8, 2013  $7,700 (optional finance and accounting day on 11/5/13 is $1,200)
Location:  Boston, MA

Objectives and Benefits
The Directors’ Consortium is designed for board members of public companies. The program offers an engaging, hands-on environment where you can benchmark best practices and exchange ideas that will influence the advancement and understanding of corporate governance practices in your organization.

Led by world-class faculty, experienced directors, and other experts, you will examine multiple, real-world scenarios and formulate action plans enriched by peer-group interactions. Board members of companies that aspire to become public in the near future, as well as those who serve on boards of foreign corporations that are or aspire to be listed on U.S. exchanges, also will benefit. (The disciplines covered will have applicability to private, family-owned, and nonprofit organizations, but not all of the specific regulations and processes examined will apply.)

As a participant in this program, you will
- understand essential questions that you should be asking management and outside experts regarding financing, disclosure, governance, succession planning, compensation, and litigation;
- learn what audit committee members should know about revenue recognition, off-balance-sheet financing, and accounting methods and disclosures;
- develop frameworks for prudent legal strategies that help boards navigate in litigious environments;
- understand and benchmark against best practices in corporate governance;
- develop strategies for managing CEO succession and evaluating executive compensation;
- evaluate the role of your board in strategy development, evaluation, and evolution.

Who Should Attend
The Directors’ Consortium is designed for current or future members of a public company’s board. Board members of companies that aspire to become public in the near future, as well as those who serve on boards of foreign corporations that are or aspire to be listed on U.S. exchanges, will also benefit. The disciplines covered will have applicability to private, family-owned, and nonprofit organizations, but not all of the specific regulations and processes examined will apply.
