This course is a research seminar for doctoral students on executive compensation. Given the time constraints of the course, we cannot possibly provide a comprehensive coverage of all the relevant research. Rather, the papers are intended to provide an introduction into
this stream of literature.
The goal is twofold: to learn the key questions and findings in the literature to date (as well as the institutional details), develop ideas for future research in this area and, more generally, gain insights on how to do research.
