Corporate Governance Research Initiative
The James Irvin Miller Professor of Accounting, Emeritus
The role of good governance in the leadership of private and public companies has moved from the shadows to the spotlight. Stanford GSB's David Larcker is bringing an academic's scrutiny to a field needing fact-based research.
Through our research and efforts, we strive to engage academics and professionals to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and promote corporate governance as an independent area of teaching and scholarship in business schools worldwide.
Our research covers a broad range of issues facing corporations and boards of directors:
- Principles of corporate governance
- Board of directors
- Leadership and succession planning
- Audit and risk
- Shareholders and proxy advisory
- Formulate a reasoned and neutral assessment based on academic research and proven experience
- Connect with an audience of influencers and practitioners who can apply our knowledge to classrooms and organizations around the world
- Be receptive to and collaborate with academics and practitioners from the public and private sectors
