Course Description

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with the theory and practice of corporate governance particularly relating to social accountability and reporting. This course examines theories of corporate governance, evaluating the evolution of traditional governance systems to provide incentives to managers. In this course, this theoretical framework is extended to address both the “triple bottom line and entire supply chain”, in light of increasing demands for accountability, transparency, and social responsibility of managers and business. Issues such as sustainability management accounting/control, reporting, auditing, and verification are also examined and discussed, and the role of drivers such as reporting/governance codes and the investment community in enhancing organizational change toward a sustainable development are critically evaluated. The course uses case study illustrations from various corporate contexts.
