Corporate Governance – An Introduction

Corporate governance is a broad term to describe the rules, processes, and laws by which companies are directed and controlled for the benefit of company shareholders and other stakeholders. Good corporate governance contributes to sustainable economic development by enhancing the performance of companies and improving their access to outside sources of funds.

 

This course describes the roles and responsibilities of company boards of directors (and their sub-committees) in promoting effective corporate governance. It also looks at some of the key issues, such as director remuneration and institutional investor engagement that are crucial to good corporate governance. Well-known examples of corporate governance failures are also highlighted.
