Can Purpose Deliver Better Corporate Governance?

The IESE Center for Corporate Governance and ECGI are partnering to bring together leading scholars from the fields of strategy, organizational theory, organizational economics, finance and corporate law to address this question at their virtual conference on October 28-30, 2020. 

Extensions of the 2020 SMS Annual Conference

Extensions are separate, topical workshops individually organized and aiming to further the scientific debate on a specific topic in smaller workshop-type settings with the intent of bringing together attendees of the main SMS conference with local scholars. Typically, these one-day workshops are organized as a sequence of panel sessions organized around the theme of the extension. 

This year, all extensions will be hosted virtually on days surrounding the Annual Conference.
