Description: Using business case studies and an academic framework built on economic theories, Executive Seminar IV will focus on the foundations of corporate governance from the current debate on objectives of corporations that is captivating corporate America to designing and executing good governance practices. We will use case studies to examine topics such as the roles and responsibilities of corporate boards, how corporate governance should be designed to support growth and transformation from being a private company to IPO, the role of culture and financial incentives on ethics and corporate performance, the pros and cons of dual class structures, and the effects of shareholder activism.
