Syllabus
Prerequisiti: Fluency with basic principles of corporate finance and financial management are recommended since the class frequently leverages this knowledge base.
Conoscenze e abilita' da acquisire: The course aims at introducing students to the main theories, models and practices of corporate governance, making them aware of the different roles played by boards and directors in different legal, institutional, and ownership settings.
The course examines the corporate governance systems prevailing when ownership is dispersed, i.e. the Anglo-Saxon model, and when ownership is concentrated in the hands of one or few blockholders. In particular, since blockholding is widespread over a number of different legal systems and it encompasses a variety of owner’s types (families, institutional investors, banks, etc.), after having reviewed corporate governance in the Anglo-Saxon setting, the course examines one of the most distinctive models and two of the most debated and common type of owners: the German system, that involves employees in the corporate governance process; Private Equity houses, whose effectiveness in monitoring and steering management by means of a variety of governance mechanisms has been and is widely debated, and pyramidal family groups, which melt typical family governance mechanisms with those used by institutional investors.
Modalita' di esame: Closed-book exam with multiple choices, short answers, and two open-ended questions.
Criteri di valutazione: Understanding of the topics covered during classes and in the course materials; teamwork.
Contenuti: The course consists of two modules. The first module reviews the main theories, frameworks and practices of corporate governance, focusing in particular on the Anglo-Saxon system. The first module is organised around four main themes: the nature of corporation; the evolution of ownership and its role, with special reference to the US; board characteristics and functions; executive compensation and incentives.
Building on the theories examined in the first module, the second module moves to corporate governance frameworks and practices when ownership is concentrated in the hands of few blockholders. Namely the second module covers three different ownership/institutional settings: the German system; the pyramidal family groups; Private Equity backed firms.
Attivita' di apprendimento previste e metodologie di insegnamento: Lectures on the topics faced in the course are supplemented by open discussions with students, case studies, and guest speakers.
Eventuali indicazioni sui materiali di studio: Course materials include the textbook by Monk & Minow (Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4) and a number of selected readings made available at the beginning of the classes.
