Omschrijving Effective governance is crucial for organizations. Students learn how to critically evaluate governance research and practice, how to apply theories and findings from such research to analyze governance problems. The aim of this course is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of how the determinants and outcomes of corporate governance arrangements have been measured and studied in the academic literature and applied to governance problems. As this literature is extensive, we need to focus on a number of topics that are of interest. The topics that will be chosen will be particularly relevant as they are hotly debated in academic as well as policymaking circles (e.g. executive pay, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the board of directors, diversity).
