Who will benefit

Maximize Your Board’s Potential is intended for current and future board members and high level executives. The program is given at an executive MBA level.

Many executives and vice presidents of large companies participated in past editions of the program. For them understanding new corporate governance has proven to be extremely useful when intending to expand business ventures, navigating complexity, risks and uncertainty, and last but not least in developing leadership tools.


“This class does an excellent job for senior business leaders to understand new corporate governance, the dynamics between the CEO, the Chairman and other members of the Board and to understand how audit, corporate governance nominating & compensation and risk management committees can function best. It makes it easy to appreciate board, executive team and shareholder perspectives in a US and European setting.”

Program description

Current and future board members must learn how to deal with disruptive times that bring complex oversight challenges. Among many others, demands for transparency, accountability, efficiency and corporate strategy involvements are continually increasing. Therefore, a deeper understanding of the role, tasks and responsibilities of the board is needed to cope with the increasing demands of these topics. Join us to update your knowledge of the complex world that board members need to face in 2022 and the future.

During the intensive four days, eight thought leaders will share their experiences while discussing the most recent Harvard Business Cases. All important aspects of board governance will be addressed, varying from external governance in global finance, legal and regulatory institutional frameworks, to governance inside the top layers of corporations and family businesses. Skills essential to governance excellence in today’s business landscape are also deliberated. All together, the focus will be on maximizing the board’s potential and the differences in management of companies in the Netherlands and the US.

Come with people and challenges, leave with a team and breakthrough results.
Prof. Dr. Fred van Eenennaam
