Learning outcomes

This course aims at developing participant’s skills in both understanding and analyzing how firms of the contemporary economic contest are controlled and managed, who effectively decides for any economic decisions and which mechanisms drive the sharing of the value created among shareholders.
Governance systems are investigated considering the rules that are part of the structure and the daily operations of firms as well as the processes that both orient strategic choices and control the implementation of the corporate strategy, in the view of value creation, over time, for share- and stake-holders.
The course incentives a strong link between the comprehension of basic knowledge, definitely useful to develop a conscious approach to the study of governance issues from a theoretical point of view, and the student’s capabilities of analyzing and discussing case histories that represent real firm’s situations.
