Leadership and Governance Capstone

Executive Leadership and Corporate Governance Capstone Course

This course helps Isaac & Oxley CBL Fellows, Masters of Accountancy students and other highly motivated Farmer School students become ethical, innovative, inclusive and global business leaders. It focuses on developing future business leaders via a capstone experience in which topics covered are viewed from executive perspectives (i.e., those who identify and implement strategy and operations) and corporate governance perspectives (i.e., those who are charged with oversight). This capstone course experience is important for highly motivated students prior to entering the workforce because the knowledge, skills, and abilities learned in the course can take many years to fully develop. By understanding “what it takes” to be a business leader early in their careers, students become more motivated to continually seek leadership development opportunities as they begin their careers. This approach helps students understand the challenges they face when developing and sustaining long-term value while managing diverse groups of influential stakeholders with varying expectations of the organizations’ strategic and operating decisions.

This course was developed in conjunction with the Isaac & Oxley CBL/KPMG Curriculum Development Initiative as described below.
