Harvard Business School (HBS) has announced Leadership and Corporate Accountability-India (LCAI), a new programme scheduled from November 19-22 at the HBS style classroom at Taj Lands End, Mumbai, as part of its Executive Education program portfolio for India.

Led by Prof. Rohit Deshpande, who helped design and teach the required MBA course on this topic at Harvard Business School, the programme will provide business leaders with a hands-on framework for promoting socially and financially responsible corporate conduct, in an Indian environment of heightened competition and accountability.

According to Rohit Deshpande, Faculty Chair of Leadership and Corporate Accountability-India, the programme emerged as a response to the internal and external governance challenges facing business leaders globally.

The programme will prepare participants for leadership in a changing global society filled with competing claims from multiple stakeholders (stockholders, employees, customers, governments).

They will return with an understanding of values, incentives, and risk management systems they need to put in place to guide their organisation through these kinds of complex challenges, he said.

As with all HBS Executive Education programmes, all programmes in the India portfolio will be taught by members of the School’s own full-time faculty using the HBS case method in a newly-opened, state-of-the-art multimedia case study classroom at Taj Land’s End Hotel.
