The individuals ultimately tasked with formulating and implementing decisions that affect how their organizations perform are the executives that compromise the C-Suite and Board of Directors – that is, firms’ strategic leaders. This course will explore the role in firm decision-making and performance played by both behavioral and discretionary factors associated with these strategic leaders as well as various governance mechanisms. Differences in strategic leadership and governance across institutional and regulatory contexts will also be considered. This course is an interactive and discussion centered course, where students will have an opportunity to analyze and critically discuss legal and ethical situations and issues that businesses and their stakeholders face.
