Corporate governance is an interdisciplinary field of research and one of the main research areas in accounting, finance, and management. Governance research does not only get cited very frequently but it also has policy impact and matters to practitioners such as corporate directors, professional investors, and regulators. However, governance research is also subject to severe endogeneity concerns, which, on one hand, hamper causal inference and, on the other hand, make this field of research very interesting. The aim of this course is to provide PhDs and PostDocs with an overview of current research topics and applied empirical methods in corporate governance (including managerial economics). The focus is on up-to-date and societally relevant topics. Recent papers are presented and discussed, with a focus on the papers‘ econometric and theoretical strengths and weaknesses as well as their contribution. The course also deals with identifying new, unaddressed research questions and provides important insights from some very inspiring seminal and recent studies.
