Consequently, current and potential members of supervisory and advisory boards require extensive qualifications. The Government Commission on the German Corporate Governance Code has consistently included executive education for supervisory board members in their standards of conduct catalog. In this program, we offer a special approach in which board members and supervisory board members qualify supervisory board members.

Key benefits

In an intensive exchange of experiences with active supervisory board members, participants will prepare themselves for future supervisory, administrative, and advisory tasks. They will deepen their knowledge and receive new input for the tasks ahead. At the same time, the foundation will be laid for a network of engaged, elected office holders that will last beyond the duration of the program.
