School of Business at Renmin University of China


Time/Date: 16:15-18:00, September 4, 2023
Venue: E22-G015



China is important, and also is unique. Understanding corporate governance in China can help greatly extend depth and width of the theory and practice of corporate governance. I will focus on and discuss the uniqueness of corporate governance in China from eight aspects: large shareholders, institutional investors, board of directors, managerial incentives, information intermediaries, laws and regulations, three types of markets (i.e., manager labor, product, and corporate control), and corporate social responsibility (CSR).

*The PPT Slides will be in English, but the speaker will speak in Mandarin.
