PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

This is a course about boards and corporate governance from strategic management and organizational behaviour perspectives. The understanding of value creation and the human side will be focused . The objectives is to let the students explore and be a part of a stream of corporate governance research that is rooted in management theories and approaches. We will in the course introduce, explore and discuss topics, theories and methods, and we will challenge dominant concepts and wisdom about boards and corporate governance.

Topics include board processes and team dynamics, board leadership, interactions and influences inside and outside the boardroom, board-management relationships, trust and power, norms and codes, value creation and board tasks, board composition and board member compentences and identities, compensation, ownership types and structures. Boards and corporate governance will not only be discussed in light of listed corporations, but also in relation to family firms, entrepreneurial firms, etc. We will also address the evolution of the corporate governance debate, including lessons from the present financial crisis. Comparisons across countries and systems will be made.

The teaching mode will be interactive. The course will have three main parts. First, challenges from practice and existing knowledge will be introduced and discussed, and an accumulative sorting logic will be suggested. Second, various issues will be explored in-depth based on discussion of selected articles. Third, the students will be challenged and supported in writing their own articles and research proposal based on the content of the course. Course evaluation will be done based on these efforts. Inputs from the publishing process will be given. The use of various research methods will be discussed throughout the course, including experiences from using various qualitative methods.
