Corporate Governance and Risk

Module code: AFE7515-A

This module introduces students to how firms are governed and how differences in firm governance have profound implications on firm performance, while these are shaped by the external legal and institutional environment within which firms are embedded. On successful completion of this module students should be able to critically evaluate the governance structure of firms and its implications as well as developing a deeper understanding of the implications arising from national legal systems and institutional environments. Students will also have a thorough understanding of the corporate governance environment in major world economies such as UK, US, Japan and China and understand how governance reforms and legislation are both needed and occur in the wake of corporate scandals.
