XX Workshop on Corporate Governance and Investment

Conference dates

27 Sep 2019 - 28 Sep 2019

Location

Oslo, Norway

Description

Oslo Business School of the Metropolitan University of Oslo announces the 20th Workshop on Corporate Governance and Investment scheduled for September 27th – 28th in Oslo, Norway.

This workshop is an initiative of a group of researchers leaded by Prof. Dennis Mueller (University of Vienna) where we discuss research at an advanced stage in a very participative environment. The theme of the workshop is corporate governance and investment in a broad sense, ranging from board studies to mergers and acquisitions. Last year had a focus on family ownership. We want to follow up with more on ownership, both in terms of ownership concentration and ownership types.
To achieve the objective of lively interaction, as in former workshops, there will not be parallel sessions and presenters will have time enough for questions, discussions and comments from the audience. The workshop is organized to hold 15 paper approximately in a day and a half format.

To submit proposals to the workshop, please send an email to oystst@oslomet.no with WCGI2019 in the subject line.
