Upcoming NYC Event: Challenges to Leadership and Governance Conference

Want to get a taste of what Simon’s students, professors, and alumni are thinking and talking about? Consider attending our upcoming conference, Challenges to Leadership and Governance.

With all the turmoil in recent economic times, executives are coming under greater pressure to meet high ethical and moral standards. This trickles down into the organization through increased accounting and auditing measures, which translates to a change in day-to-day business throughout the firm. Learn more about how this might affect you and your future plans!

Speakers and panelists will address changes in the role of boards of directors in response to the recent crisis, the impact of changes in accounting rules on business decisions and strategic issues faced by CEO’s today in light of changes in government policies.
