The Louisiana Business Emergency Operations Center (LABEOC) will work to enhance the state’s
emergency management efforts by supporting the continuity of business and industry during and after a
crisis or emergency. The LA BEOC, located at LSU’s South Campus on GSRI Avenue in Baton Rouge,
officially opened on June 2, 2010. The facility is a partnership among the LSU Stephenson Disaster
Management Institute (SDMI), Louisiana Economic Development, the Governor’s Office of Homeland
Security and Emergency Preparedness and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s National Incident
Management Systems and Advanced Technologies Institute. The mission of the LA BEOC is to support
disaster management in Louisiana by developing an accurate understanding of economic impacts to
critical infrastructures and major economic drivers, as well as coordinating businesses and volunteer
organizations with the public sector. Through the LA BEOC, the state will work to improve disaster
preparedness and response; reduce reliance on FEMA and other federal assistance; maximize business,
industry and economic stabilization; and return the business environment to normal operations quickly. In
connection with the LA BEOC, Louisiana will be the first state in the nation to release a public version of
Google Earth, and citizens of Louisiana will now have access to Louisiana Earth. During a disaster, the LA
BEOC will provide critical information to Louisiana Earth, which will be maintained by GOHSEP. This is the
first time this technology will be used in such a unique way for the public.
The Stephenson Disaster Management Institute (SDMI) was formed to address the issues and challenges
rapid and effective response to disasters by creating a world class organization in which engaged
academic researchers, talented disaster managers, and expert advisors from the private sector
collaborate to study disaster management problems, develop realistic solutions, publish smart practices,
and teach improved disaster management strategies. SDMI will enhance LSU’s ability to bring its existing
programs and research capacity to bear on the particular problems of disasters, and will add substantial
additional capacity with respect to strategic management and decision-making. SDMI will assure that LSU
continues the national prominence it has recently gained, and more importantly, will assure that the
nation becomes better able to respond to future catastrophes. The mission of the institute is to save the
lives of people and animals by continuously improving disaster response management through research
and education.

- Workshop: Enterprise Risk Management, Risk Driven Resource Allocation, and Engagement
Planning by Professor Glenn Sumners, CIA, CFE, CMA
Enterprise risk management (ERM) in business includes the methods and processes used by organizations
to manage risks and seize opportunities related to the achievement of their objectives. ERM provides a
framework for risk management, which typically involves identifying particular events or circumstances
relevant to the organization's objectives (risks and opportunities), assessing them in terms of likelihood
and magnitude of impact, determining a response strategy, and monitoring progress. By identifying and
proactively addressing risks and opportunities, business enterprises protect and create value for their
stakeholders, including owners, employees, customers, regulators, and society overall. ERM can also be
described as a risk-based approach to managing an enterprise, integrating concepts of internal control,
Sarbanes–Oxley Act, and strategic planning. ERM is evolving to address the needs of various stakeholders,
who want to understand the broad spectrum of risks facing complex organizations to ensure they are
appropriately managed. Regulators and debt rating agencies have increased their scrutiny on the risk
management processes of companies.

-Seminar on International Finance Report Standards (IFRS) by Professor Agnes Cheng
-Dinner/Keynote Speaker Aaron Beam on Ethics
The Shaw Group Inc. was founded in 1987 as a fabrication shop in Baton Rouge, La., by Chairman,
President and Chief Executive Officer J.M. Bernhard Jr. and two colleagues. Driven by leaders with bold
vision and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, the company has evolved into a diverse engineering,
construction, technology, fabrication, environmental and industrial services organization with 28,000
employees in strategic locations around the world.
Corporate Governance is the set of processes, customs, policies, laws, and institutions affecting the way a
corporation (or a company) is directed, administered or controlled. Corporate governance also includes
the relationships among the many stakeholders involved and the goals for which the corporation is
governed. The principal stakeholders are the shareholders, the board of directors, employees, customers,
creditors, suppliers, and the community at large.
Corporate governance is a multi-faceted subject. An important theme of corporate governance is to
ensure the accountability of certain individuals in an organization through mechanisms that try to reduce
or eliminate the principal-agent problem. A related but separate thread of discussions focuses on the
impact of a corporate governance system in economic efficiency, with a strong emphasis on shareholders'
welfare. There are yet other aspects to the corporate governance subject, such as the stakeholder view
and the corporate governance models around the world.
There has been renewed interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations since
2001, particularly due to the high-profile collapses of a number of large U.S. firms such as Enron
Corporation and MCI Inc. (formerly WorldCom). In 2002, the U.S. federal government passed the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act, intending to restore public confidence in corporate governance.
Jean McGuire, is a professor at Louisiana State University and teaches Strategic Management. Her
research interests are in Corporate Governance, International Corporate Governance, and Executive
International Financial Report Standards (IFRS) are a set of international accounting standards stating
how particular types of transactions and other events should be reported in financial statements. IFRS are
issued by the International Accounting Standards Board.
The goal with IFRS is to make international comparisons as easy as possible. This is difficult because, to a
large extent, each country has its own set of rules. For example, U.S. GAAP is different from Canadian
GAAP. Synchronizing accounting standards across the globe is an ongoing process in the international
accounting community.
Agnes Cheng is a professor at Louisiana State University and teaches Intermediate Accounting I and
Accounting Research Seminar I. Her research interests include Financial Accounting, Intermediate

Aaron Beam story reads like the "Great American Success Story": start a company from zero, raise some
venture capital, take the company public in two years, become a millionaire overnight and see the
company become the darling of Wall Street. But this success story didn't end there. Instead, Beam found
himself in the middle of a corporate scandal, lost almost everything and ended up in prison. That's not the
way success stories are supposed to end, but for Beam, that was the harsh reality. Former Chief Financial

-Seminar: Recent Developments in Corporate Finance Research/Financing Decisions presented by
Professor Ji-Chai Lin
Recent Developments in Corporate Finance Research- Students will learn why the financial behavior of
corporations has changed greatly in the last ten years. Previously, most of the cash that stockholders
received from corporations took the form of dividends, and economists' models that have dividends as
the ultimate determinant of equity values were not far off the mark. This is all different now. There are
strong tax incentives for nondividend cash payments between corporations and shareholders. These
payments can take the form of a repurchase by the company of its own shares, or the acquisition of the
shares in another company. There has been tremendous growth in the magnitude of nondividend cash
payments. In the early 1970s these payments amounted to roughly 15 percent of dividends. By 1984, they
exceeded dividends, and in 1985 the amounted to $120 billion, or almost 50 percent more than total
dividends in the economy. However, dividends per unit equity have not fallen. Rather, the acquisition of
equity has allowed firms to retain relatively constant debt equity ratios in the past five years despite
strong equity markets. Firms have chosen to absorb equity and issue debt, roughly holding leverage
constant, and have thus saved large amounts of taxes.
Ji-Chai Lin teaches Investments, Investment Analysis and Portfolio Theory and Seminar in Investments at
Louisiana State University. His research interests include investments, corporate finance, and market
microstructure and investor behavior and market efficiency. Additionally, he is an associate editor for
both the Review of Pacific Basin Financial Markets and Policies and for the International Journal of
Business. Lin is also on the editorial board of the Journal of Financial Studies.
After earning his B.B.A. from National Cheng Kung University in 1980, Lin received his Ph.D. from the
University of Iowa in 1988. Since his arrival at LSU, he has been honored with the LSU Tiger Athletic
Foundation Undergraduate Teaching Award, the H.B. Harrison Paint Company/E. H. Harrison Lectureship
Award twice and has been presented best or outstanding paper awards on three occasions. He was
presented the National Science Council Research Fellowship of Taiwan in 1996.
