LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

To create an appreciation and analytical framework for the problems facing stakeholders in public corporations (shareholders, directors, officers, and the public), particularly in light of the world wide financial and corporate crisis.

Lehrmethodik

Lectures in English by native-speaker U.S. business lawyer; case studies; in-class discussions and presentations.

Inhalt/e

The financial crisis, the Hypo Bank in Austria, Volkswagen test result scandal, Bernie Madoff, and the earlier dramatic collapse of ENRON and WORLDCOM in the United States (and banking scandals, SIEMENS bribery, in Germany and PARMALAT in Italy) have focused world attention on how public corporations are governed, regulated and monitored. Over the last years, Europe and the United States reacted with new laws, new regulations, new initiatives and a new sense that investors in corporations need to be protected (even from themselves). This course will cover these developments and how corporate "culture" contributes to the need for corporate "governance."

Topics

  • Corporate structure and bodies
  • Corporate culture
  • Case study: ENRON
  • Case study: PARMALAT
  • Mini-Case study: TECHVILLE
  • International business legal environment
  • Regulatory bodies
  • Issues: remuneration, nomination, capital maintenance, audit committees, etc.
  • USA: Sarbanes-Oxley Act
  • EU: Action PLan
  • Austrian Code of Corporate Governance
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Wirtschaft und Recht
  • Corporate culture

Literatur

Handouts; excerpts from laws and regulations; internet readings; "Corporate Goverance," Robert A.G. Monks and Neil Minow, eds. (2003).
