On-campus Research System

Special Research Project

Investigate latest corporate governance models to see if Japanese listed companies can use some of those ideas to improve corporate governance.

2013

Research Results Outline:I investigated the latest corporate governance theories and practical modelI investigated the latest corporate governance theories and practical models through personal interviews with corporate gove...I investigated the latest corporate governance theories and practical models through personal interviews with corporate governance experts at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and Stanford University Center for Leadership Development and Research. The purpose of this research was to attempt to develop corporate governance guidelines that might fit the needs of listed companies in Japan. My investigation included a one-week period of interviews with corporate governance experts and detailed comparisons of corporate governance models from other countries. As a result of my investigation I have discovered some significant possibilities for increasing global confidence in corporate governance in Japan. I plan to publish the outcome of my research as a paper of high quality that will be submitted to a peer-reviewed academic journal in the future.
