Harvard Business School (HBS) will host an executive education program Leadership and Corporate Accountability – India, from November 18-21, 2013 at the HBS style classroom at Taj Lands’ End, Mumbai. This interdisciplinary program, ideal for executives in key decision-making roles at the divisional level and above in large established companies, is offered for the second time in Mumbai following its success last year.

“The challenges facing today's business leaders are more daunting than ever. In this environment of heightened competition and transparency, executives are expected to consider the impact of every decision on their organization and community. The Leadership and Corporate Accountability – India program helps establish guidelines for making decisions that simultaneously support the organization's financial needs, legal requirements, and ethical obligations,” said Rohit Deshpandé, Sebastian S. Kresge HBS Professor of Marketing and faculty chair of Leadership and Corporate Accountability – India.

As the region’s growth slows down and competition for customers and capital increases, the program will explore numerous ways in which credibility from sound leadership and corporate accountability can be a significant source of competitive advantage.

 “Leadership and Corporate Accountability—India is built around highly illustrative regional and global case studies that represent a broad range of issues faced by corporate leaders across businesses, industries, and countries. It emerged as a response to the internal and external governance challenges faced by many hence it will prepare participants in this changing global society filled with competing claims from multiple stakeholders (stockholders, employees, customers, governments). They will return with an understanding of the values, incentives, and risk management systems that need to be put in place to guide their organization through these complex times,” said Karthik Ramanna, HBS Associate Professor of Business Administration and Leadership and Corporate Accountability – India and faculty member.

As with all HBS Executive Education programs, the India portfolio will be taught by members of the School’s own full-time faculty using the renowned HBS case method. Faculty lectures, discussions, and case studies will help participants acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to meet their corporate responsibilities.

This program's curriculum is based on leading-edge global research, prevailing codes of business conduct, and the curriculum of Harvard's highly successful Leadership and Corporate Accountability required MBA course. It incorporates best-practice cases on Indian companies such as crisis management at Taj Hotels during 26/11, and building a globally trusted brand at Infosys—as well as cautionary cases from Wall Street during the global financial crisis.
