This course is particularly interesting and important to students who strive to work in middle and top management but also for all others interested in understanding how decisions at the top of an organization are made. Behavioral corporate governance is the study of the behavior of top executives and directors - individually, within, and across groups. We will cover a selection of different topics and strategic situations from the realm of top decision-makers to understand how decision maker's behavior affects the outcomes of such decisions, for the better or worse of the entire organization. Recurring scandals, such as Enron, Wirecard, or Silicon Valley Bank, and global crises, such as the pandemic or the Russian invasion of Ukraine, regularly show the importance of top decision makers' conduct and behavior, which can ultimately fail or thrive an organization.
