About the course

Corporate governance is concerned with the management of interactions between dispersed investors and the reconciliation of possible conflicts of interest between various corporate stakeholders. The literature on corporate governance discusses, among other things, the role and responsibility of owners, the role and responsibility of boards, executive compensation, internal control, disclosure of governance arrangements as well as historical explanations about different corporate governance systems. Many countries also have corporate governance codes that public companies can or have to follow. During the course students are given an overview of theoretical perspectives influencing regulatory practices as well as recent trends related to corporate governance.

The course is given and examined in English.

The schedule will be available one month before the course starts.
