This course aims to introduce students to key concepts in strategic corporate governance, and use these concepts to understand the different economic, social and political contexts across advanced industrial and emerging economies.
This course should enable students to describe key aspects of corporate governance systems in a number of different countries and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of these systems in comparison. Students should gain greater appreciation for the importance of social and political factors in shaping different models of firm organization across countries, and critically understand how new governance practices and institutional norms develop in response to changes in the real world of business management.
