RCGA-688: Corporate Governance and Accountability Report a Broken Link



This course is designed to provide students with a thorough grounding in corporate governance theory, research, and practice, including associated reporting and regulation. Students will become familiar with and critique the academic literature in the area, as well as develop their ability to integrate and synthesize topics in order to appreciate current debates and explore potentially fruitful avenues for development.

Students will explore course concepts through readings, case studies, research, and discussions, both online and face to face during the in-residence week. The in-residence week will also include presentations by academics and industry representatives. By the end of the course, students should be able to relate knowledge gained from the elective to their own organizations, and they will be required to demonstrate this in their final assignment.
