OBJECTIVES The aim of the course is to provide students with an overview of the main topics in corporate governance both at a theoretical and empirical level. After this course they should be able to: - Comprehend why the interests of the shareholders differ from the interests of other stakeholders, why managerial decisions may be oriented to suit some particular interests and how this in turn may destroy firm value. - Critically understand the mechanisms used to govern firms, including evaluation criteria of top managers. - Comprehensively understand the factors that influence the functioning and decision-making of a board of directors, and its effects in terms of firm strategy and performance. - Assess the effects of capital market globalization for corporate governance and strategy in different countries. - Discover the reasons behind the existence of different models of governance within specific countries and across the world, as well as analyze the potential gains and costs associated to these alternative governance models. - Assess the relative importance of foreign economic actors and local institutions for managerial decision-making. - Assess the benefits and costs related to investments in corporate social responsibility and its interrelationships with other corporate governance mechanisms.
