Corporate Governance (institutional aspects)
Prof. Joseph A. Jr. McCahery

This course is meant to cover the major areas of corporate governance, including an overview of key corporate governance matters; the duties and responsibilities of directors, including non-executives; the evolution of corporate law; executive pay; earnings management; the significance of institutional investors for corporate governance; the legal control of insiders; and takeover bids. An important goal will be to familiarize students with the economic environment, legal rules and challenges of corporate governance reform. Emphasis will be given to the contemporary debates regarding the failure of boards to protect the interests of minority shareholders, the limitations of executive compensation policies, and the declining importance of the market for corporate control to restrain managers. The course will encourage students to use various analytical tools to deal with key governance issues that face managers, directors, and investors.

Digital Corporate Communication
Prof. Andreina Mandelli

New communication technologies and media platforms such as social networks, microblogs, video-sharing sites, geo-location services, accessible also via mobile devices (tablets and smartphones), are transforming the media landscape but also the way we develop interactions, tell our stories and build relationships in organizations and markets. This course will examine the impact of this transformation on our possibility to communicate, and to co-create value with customers, employees and the other stakeholders in the organization.
