About the course
Our program prepares senior women business leaders for advancement to corporate board membership and develops the governance skills and acumen required for board success.
UCLA Anderson Executive Education has been a leader in the corporate governance space since 1999. We believe that the more inclusive the board leadership of a company is, the more effectively it can exercise its fiduciary responsibility, oversee the strategy and ensure the success of the organization.
