The center's mission is to produce and encourage top-quality academic research and to promote debate in both the academic and business communities on contemporary corporate governance issues. Through the lens of corporate governance, the center stimulates financial market development throughout the world.
Recognizing the multi-disciplinary nature of the field of corporate governance, our research draws from the fields of financial economics, organizational behavior, and law. With its grounding in modern finance, the center emphasizes key questions facing the capital markets and the investment banking industry. These key questions include how to raise capital on competitive terms, how to efficiently restructure poorly performing corporations, and how to implement optimal incentive structures at the level of both top management and the board.
Activities at the center are generally aimed at top-level managers, current and prospective board members, active investors and their advisors, financial market regulators, as well as the academic community.
