One of the Corporate Governance and Leadership initiative's most important functions is supporting the Business School's commitment to world-class research. Business School faculty members have a long tradition of advancing management knowledge in formative ways, often bringing insight from basic disciplines, such as economics, psychology, and sociology to inform leadership and governance practices. The topics examined by our faculty are as diverse as the choices and challenges facing today's corporate leaders. They include how leaders establish trust, how they create new strategies, how best to monitor risk, and how they can act to implement those strategies more effectively.
