The Institute for Corporate Governance pursues three main activities:

  • Research & Publications

    To understand and promote best practices in corporate governance

  • Organising Conferences & Seminars

    To bring interested professionals and students together for discussion and continuing education

  • Preparing Leaders & Rising Board Members

    To prepare executives rising to boards, and business and law students, for  corporate governance challenges

The Institute for Corporate Governance is sponsored by ESCP and KPMG.

What is Corporate Governance?

At its most basic, Corporate Governance is about how power is exercised over a corporate entity.  “Corporate governance involves a set of relationships between a company’s management, its board, its shareholders and other stakeholders.  Corporate governance also provides the structure through which the objectives of a company are set, and the means of attaining those objectives and monitoring performance are determined.”  G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance (2015)

 

Boardroom Simulation

What happens in a corporate board room nearly always stays in the board room, and interested outsiders don’t get to see how boards work in practice.  Tools that teach concepts of corporate governance can help a little, but if learners can’t apply the concepts in a real-world way to the workings of a corporate board, then they won’t really understand how boards work in practice.
We have a solution: a  boardroom simulation with a difference. After simulating a company board meeting, learners compare their performance with that of experienced practitioners videotaped in the very same board meeting situation.

History of the ICG

The Institute for Corporate Governance (the ICG) emerged from the KPMG Professorship in International Corporate Governance at ESCP Business School.  That professorship, which supported research and teaching activities on the subject of corporate governance, ended in 2021.

The ICG was created by ESCP Professors of Law David Chekroun and Drew Shagrin, and ESCP Senior Fellow Patrick-Hubert Petit, with the participation of a community of business and policy leaders, corporate directors, lawyers, academics, alumni, and students.

The Institute for Corporate Governance is led by a Steering Committee and a Strategic Committee.  Discover their members.
