GBUS 603 - Corporate Governance

This course examines the complex dynamics among boards, executives, and shareholders; the evolving rights and powers of shareholders; the work that boards do and the critical decisions they make; the legal, financial, managerial, and behavioral issues that directors must contend with in order to be effective; the classic dilemmas that boards confront; and the challenges faced by individual directors.  Throughout the course, “good governance” and what it means for boards, executives and companies will be explored. Students will also explore contemporary debates about shareholder activism, board diversity, board leadership, executive compensation, environmental and social factors in governance, hostile takeovers, and the market for corporate control.
