The main goal of the course is to develop an understanding of key corporate governance mechanisms and ESG investment practices and how they relate to firm value.

Corporate governance deals with how the suppliers of capital ensure that corporate managers make efficient use of that capital and provide investors with a return commensurate with the risk of the investment. Better governance lowers the cost of capital and leads to greater financial development and higher economic growth. Consequently, countries are searching for the set of governance practices, rules and regulations that will most effectively promote economic development.

Furthermore, the course will study the recent Environmental, Social, and Governance (EGS) movement and how it affects firm value and investment decisions.

This course will study main corporate governance mechanisms and ESG investment practices. We will discuss key regulatory efforts in ESG and how ESG factors should be incorporated in investment analysis. The course will analyse how corporate governance and ESG practices differ across countries.
