LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - March 8, 2017) - As part of IESE's commitment to promoting CSR and sustainable development, the school has teamed up with Harvard to offer an innovative programme called "Value Creation through Effective Boards".

In order to create sustainable and long-term global prosperity, businesses need to build strong and responsible corporate boards that can promote sound governance, even in the face of today's mounting complexities. The programme, "Value Creation through Effective Boards", which is now in its third edition, is aimed at the Executive Board members of both public and private corporations.

Over four days, attendees will explore topics such as crisis management, the impact of the regulatory environment, risk management and transparency. Attendees will also benefit from the world-class expertise on offer by highly experienced, top faculty members from both IESE and Harvard.

Faculty members involved include Harvard professor Krishna Palepu, a senior advisor to the president for Global Strategy at Harvard University, IESE professor Pedro Nueno, president of the China Europe International Business School in Shanghai (CEIBS), as well as Suraj Srinivasan and Paddy Miller, professors at Harvard and IESE respectively.

The "Value Creation through Effective Boards" programme takes place from June 12 to 15, 2017, at the IESE Business School campus in Barcelona, Spain.
