İstanbul Bilgi University Faculty of Law will present a certificate program in English regarding Comparative Corporate Governance to be held by Dr. Carsten Gerner-Beuerle from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

The main purpose of the program is to examine and discuss advanced issues of corporate governance on a comparative and interdisciplinary basis. In particular, agency problems between shareholders, the management and other corporate actors will be identified and solutions to these conflicts will be discussed. In this regard, American and English laws representing the Common Law tradition and German and French laws representing the Continental European tradition will be analysed. In addition, supranational initiatives such as harmonising measures of the European Union and international corporate governance standards will be discussed.

The program is not only for those who are interested in a comparative and interdisciplinary analysis of contemporary issues of corporate governance, but also for those who would like to be able to make an assessment and interpretation of Turkish corporate governance rules in a global context.

Lectures will be presented Thursday/Friday evenings and full day on Saturdays at the Dolapdere Campus.
