Content
Institutions are the humanly devised rules that shape economic exchange. Rules are everywhere in society and have a major impact on the strategic choices individuals and organizations make. This course offers a thorough introduction into institutions and covers the development of institutions, their (lack of) adoption by relevant actors and their influences on the founding pillars of the field of business: management, marketing, accounting and finance. The course also introduces students to the effect of institutions on economic development. The course is interactive, implying that the specific topics are jointly selected with the students.
