Description: Corporate Governance Seminar - this course examines corporate governance practices around the world with a special attention given to the transition countries. The class will also discuss several general issues related to the board and the role played by legal protection of investor rights. We will discuss how the corporate governance has evolved over last ten years in the Czech Republic (and other transition countries) and where it lags behind European or US standards. Discussed will be also the impacts of global financial crisis on CG models in EU and USA. The course is based on an extensive list of readings that will be required as a basis for the class’ discussions.
