GSBA 513: CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND VALUES (2 units)
This course surveys the major corporate governance systems in the world, focusing on the values and legal and financial traditions that have led to the development of systems with quite divergent goals and institutional mechanisms. Topics such as the purpose and nature of the firm, models of corporate governance and their correspondence with legal and financial traditions, internal and external governance mechanisms, the role of regulatory authorities, and executive compensation are covered in a comparative and interdisciplinary manner. The course will require active student participation in case discussions, presentations, papers and role-plays.
