Corporate Governance

Saif Ullah Corporate Governance is emerging as the most significant area of study for managers of large and medium sized corporations. A number of international scandals have been attributed to lack of sound corporate governance practices.

To introduce the students to the concept of corporate governance, its evolution as a phenomenon, its practice and application in the more developed world, various codes and reports on the subject, the steps taken by the SECP, the role of board of directors in general and independent directors in particular, the concept of socially responsible investments, significance of internal controls and auditing, and maintenance of a healthy relationship between all stakeholders.
