MGMT S-5018 Corporate Governance

Corporate governance—the set of policies, processes, and customs by which an institution is directed—is a topic of increasing importance in strategic management. How a company is governed influences rights and relationships among organizational stakeholders, and ultimately how an organization is managed. This course teaches the fundamentals of corporate governance from a variety of angles—the board of directors, senior management, investors, the media, proxy advisors, regulators, and other stakeholders—and focuses on assessing the effectiveness and execution of governance roles and responsibilities.
