Inhalt Corporate Governance is a master level course that discusses problems and solutions related to the conflicts of interests (omni)present and intrinsically rooted in modern corporations.

The practical importance of this course naturally arises from the fact that a large number of recent corporate scandals, defaults, and failures could have been likely prevented by enhanced governance schemes. Thus, the course will try to provide answers to the following question: What checks and balances are suitable for aligning the interests of managers with those of (controlling) shareholders without harming other interest groups, such as minority shareholders, debtholders, financial markets, employees, and society at large?

Lernziele This course has three goals. First, it offers students the opportunity to gain insights, based on real-world examples (mini-cases), on the wide spectrum of (possibly dysfunctional) incentives that various interest groups face in modern corporations. Second, it provides an overview of the problems and solutions addressed by academics and practitioners in the field of corporate governance. Third, the course presents and discusses a number of established and recent empirical papers with the aim of providing students with the necessary tools and skills to conduct own empirical analyses (for example in form of a master thesis) on corporate-governance topics.
Literatur There is no required textbook for this course. However, interested students can refer to the following book for an extensive and discursive coverage of classical corporate-governance topics:
