Course Description

This course is designed as above to provide the directors with a specific focus on common top management issues that have financial implications and those that are frequently discussed as part of board room responsibilities. These issues are treated to prepare the directors to deal with them with senior management and the chief executive – the CEO, of the organization. 
In the course of fulfilling their responsibilities and roles, as well as avoid legal penalties, they need to conduct their office with appropriate understanding of the financial consequences of their decisions and their approval of issues submitted to them by the company’s chief executive and top management. without a good grasp of these issues, the board of directors may not be fulfilling their responsibilities in protecting the interests of the shareholders as well as their personal legal liabilities as officers of the company they represent.
