In today’s global economy, the banking sector is under heavy scrutiny from regulators, shareholders and society, who are all searching for both improved governance and performance. Bank boards and senior executives must deliver performance while complying with stricter regulations, avoiding sanctions at all costs, and navigating risks in an environment that remains turbulent and unpredictable. Tensions are of course present in all sectors, but they are particularly severe in banking, where compliance and ethics, long-term versus short-term trade-offs, and product and organisational complexity abound. And if all this was not enough, digitalisation and fintech are expected to cause fundamental changes.
Building on the success of INSEAD’s International Directors Programme, our flagship course in corporate governance, the new International Directors Banking Programme is designed to support international bank directors and senior executives in navigating this most challenging environment.
Set within the context of the banking sector, this programme offers practical and tested frameworks and tools for board directors seeking to boost their existing competences or review their corporate governance practices in search for a corporate culture which is anchored in both effective governance and performance.
