The Telfer MBA Conferences connect you with original thinkers whose ideas are transforming business and management in Canada and around the world. Do not miss this upcoming event!
Over the last few years, we have witnessed spectacular failure in corporate governance. From the collapse of Enron to the demise of Nortel Networks, the lack of good governance has led to the downfall of some of the largest companies, resulting in long-term consequences.
These failures of corporate governance have raised many questions about effectiveness but they have also highlighted the need for better mechanisms, rules, and practices in order to control the managerial actions and corporate decisions.
Some examples of corporate governance mechanisms that can be utilized include among others board structure, compensation structure, audit committee, government regulations, and a market for corporate control.
In this year edition of the Telfer MBA conference, our guest speakers will explore some of the challenges and issues associated with governance mechanisms and practices.
