A proper governance framework is fundamentally important in enhancing the economic performance not only in individual firms but also in promoting welfare in society. Companies need to be accountable to wider stakeholder interests and within the context of corporate social responsibility.

The goal of this course is to introduce students to a wide range of accountability issues and governance procedures in the context of social contact.
