The Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance The Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance was established in 2008 with a founding grant from the Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust and has received significant sustaining philanthropic support in the years since. Under the directorship of Associate Professor Cynthia Clark, the institute fosters a community of scholars and practitioners who pursue leading-edge research on contemporary corporate governance issues that complement Bentley’s programs in business and accountancy. A key initiative of the institute is the Harold S. Geneen Doctoral Fellowship program. Geneen Fellows pursue both qualitative and quantitative governance research while earning their PhDs. Their research has included investigating the impact of integrated forms of reporting, how trust is formed in organizations and encouraging behaviors that improve audit quality and decrease fraud. The institute has also expanded its reach to include an annual, international conference – held each fall at different global locations – a practitioner-based speaker series and an annual best paper award.
