The prevailing patterns of corporate governance in the various contexts in which the company shows a significant fragmentation of venture capital will be studied. The Corporate Governance pattern typical of the Italian system will be analyzed where such circumstance rarely occurs because of the special structure of share capital. In particular, ample time will be given to the study of governance issues typical of Italian listed and unlisted companies and to the role played by the internal control system in the context described. In the second part of the course Internal Auditing issues will be discussed, thus: Specific features of the internal auditing system of industrial and financial companies. Anti-money laundering regulations. The administrative liability of companies pursuant to Legislative Decree No. 231 and features of organizational models exempting from liability. The role of statutory auditors (and other supervisory bodies in one-tier and two-tier governance systems), the duties, the working methods. The relationships between the various supervisory and control bodies in the various governance systems (traditional – one-tier – two-tier), overlaps, redundancies and evolutionary trends, a comparison of best practices in listed companies (outline of Codes of Conduct) and companies that do not access markets. Evaluation and verification of the internal auditing system, the role of the manager in charge. The role of supervisory and control bodies in certain critical and / or risky situations: fraud, transactions with related parties, hedging transactions (derivatives).

Contenuti The following topics will be at the core of the course: • The concept of the ever-changing state. • Current issues – Brexit, the aftermath, the European response. • The European Union – its structure, institutions, role and effectiveness. • The forming of modern Europe – the legacies of two World Wars. • The forming of the Welfare States in Europe. • The Thatcher & Blair legacies. • The Banking Sector and the City of London • Globalisation. • Immigration from outside the EU and from within. • The European Central Bank, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund. • Corruption, acccountability and transparency. • Democracy - its limitations and importance. • The new Populist Politics.
Testi di riferimento There is no course textbook. Handouts will be supplied and later published on the student website. One or more of the following are essential background reading: Financial Times, Times, Guardian, Independent, European Voice, Economist , Sole 24 Ore. Any other serious political - economic journal.
Obiettivi formativi The aims of the course are to confront students with a forum of discussion and explore the current issues in world politics and economics. Presented in English, the course will challenge, debate and analyse current political and economic thinking. Students will be required to participate in discussions and will be introduced to the skills of public speaking by making their own presentations in English.
Prerequisiti To follow this course properly, students must have a B2 level of English. Since the objectives of the course are to discuss and scrutinize current world issues all of which are relevant to their other courses, students will need to develop their skills in skimming and scanning articles and be able to synthesize them into making coherent arguments. They will be required to develop their skills in making presentations and answering questions from an audience and to answer questions in a developed and intelligent way.
Metodi didattici The course will be a mixture of teacher - centred lecture/ discussion and student participation with the former being the norm in the first part and the latter in the second part of the course. In the second half, students may be required to give presentations and participate in debate/ discussions.
Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento • The exam will consist of a 2 hour written paper in which students will be invited to answer any two questions from a list of about 15. All questions will have been about topics covered during the course. The questions will require a full discursive answer presented in good English and developed into a coherent and clear argument. • There will be no oral exam for those students who pass the written part, but those who are borderline will be given the chance of an oral in order to pass. • The exam is ‘ Idoneo ‘ and carries 4 credits. International Certification. This course is judged not only on language ability but also on content and therefore international certification will not exempt anyone from doing the exam and neither will those who have done three months work experience abroad be exempt. The Department positively encourages students to take external examinations (such as the Cambridge exams ,TOEFL and IELTS) for their own value. They play a vital role in a student’s armoury for future job opportunities. Advice and assistance in enrolling and taking these exams is available at any time from me.

Obiettivi formativi Labour Economics: The course of Labour Economics seeks to analyse the functioning and the dynamics of labour markets through the interaction of workers and employers. The main objectives of the course are the following: 1. students should know, understand and be able to analyse how workers and employers take their major decisions about labour supply, labour demand and investment in human capital; 2. they should understand how those decisions influence the equilibrium of the labour market in terms of wages and employment; 3. it is also important that students know the role of institutions, understand how the policy maker can influence the performance of the labour market and evaluate the measures through which those objectives are pursued; 4. eventually students must be able to analyse the actual evolution of the labour market using the theoretical models they know. The module on the economics of innovation aims to illustrate the concepts of growth and innovation in an economic system. The students will know the sources of economic growth in the long run. In addition, they will learn the reasons for the innovative activities, elements that support research and development, and the peculiarities of the functioning of markets in innovative environment.
