NLUO GIAN Credit Course on Corporate Governance in India [Sept 19-24, Cuttack]: Register by Sept 8


National Law University, Odisha is pleased to announce that the GIAN Credit Course on Corporate Governance in India is being organised from 19th-24th September, 2016.

Course Overview

This course is intended to provide an understanding of the specific governance issues involved in Indian companies. It examines the peculiarities such as the concentrated ownership structures where business families or the state tend to exercise significant control.

A study of India and a comparison with other Asian jurisdictions, also provides an elegant framework to analyze the influence of legal regimes in business and finance generally and in corporate governance specifically. This course examines various aspects of corporate governance in India along with a comparative perspective.

Although India’s corporate governance mechanisms have been extensively transplanted from developed markets such as the US and the UK, there are specific factors in India that raise questons regarding the efficacy of such transplantation.
