Product Description

From the Back Cover

'An excellent textbook which truly stands out. It is better than any book on corporate governance that I have seen', Luc Renneboog, Tilburg University

'Marc Goergen's book on corporate governance is by far the best textbook that has been published on the topic. He has done a wonderful job of covering the topics from a global perspective and I strongly recommend it to all scholars and students with an interest in corporate governance', Franklin Allen, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

'An excellent and very comprehensive book. It should become a standard reference on corporate governance', Colin Mayer, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

 

International Corporate Governanceprovides a thorough introduction to the state of the art of corporate governance research and practice. It covers a wide range of topics, including corporate control, regulation, behavioural issues and the role of stakeholders in corporate governance. The text not only reflects the multidisciplinary nature of corporate governance, but it also adopts an international perspective by highlighting the major differences in corporate control and corporate governance practice across the world. While rigorous, the text avoids needless jargon and uses language that is accessible to a wider audience. It also makes a critical assessment of current regulation, practice and research findings.

Key features include:

  • Textboxes containing case studies illustrating the theoretical concepts covered in the chapters
  • Discussion questions at the end of each chapter
  • Exercises for the chapters introducing quantitative concepts of corporate governance
  • A section with key readings as well as further (more advanced) readings at the end of each chapter

Teaching support material can be found online at www.pearsoned.co.uk/goergen including:

  • An online test bank consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions of varying degrees of difficulty testing student knowledge and comprehension
  • An instructor’s manual with teaching notes to the discussion questions and exercises
  • A complete set of PowerPoint slides for teaching

International Corporate Governanceis suitable for advanced undergraduates, Master’s students and MBA students. It can be used as the main text for a course dedicated to corporate governance or as a text for any course with significant coverage of corporate governance issues.

Sets a New Standard for Textbooks on Corporate Governance From an International Perspective 18 July 2012
By James Mcritchie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
International Corporate Governance stands out as textbook that looks at the topic from a truly global standard. Author Marc Goergen first came to my attention in the 1990s as a member of the European Corporate Governance Network (ECGN), since renamed the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI). He brings both breadth and depth to a wide range of topics presented in lay terms.

I agree with Goergen's bias; "diversity is not necessarily bad... no single system of corporate governance is infallible." Intelligent readers of his book will be in a good position to pick and choose from among best practices that can be worked into their own company's regulatory framework or to lobby to change that framework. The book might be especially helpful to students in the UK and US who want an international perspective, since corporate governance frameworks in countries outside these spheres tend to be quite different, with dominant shareowners.

The book does a good job of covering principal-agent theory and a better job with regard to emerging behavioral issues than can be found in most US textbooks but excels at not only describing various taxonomies used internationally but in discussing distinctive features, context, advantages and shortcomings.

Especially important to US students of corporate governance might be Goergen's discussion of stakeholder and sustainability issues, since the US lags in these areas. See, for example, Singapore's recently announced revised Code of Corporate Governance embedding stakeholder, sustainability and other concerns into the fiduciary duties of boards.
Of course, the book also offers valuable advice to those in "emerging markets," specifically what individual companies can do to improve access to outside capital through cross-listing and taking other measures to reduce risks for minority shareowners.

The book includes expected learning outcomes, extensive use of tables and charts, reading lists, discussion questions, exercises and a helpful glossary. Although written primarily for students, directors and investors would also greatly benefit from the knowledge and insights Goergen instills in his readers.
