Category: Research Events

This is your chance to catch a preview of our latest cross-disciplinary research. The Vlerick Research Brown Bags are full of inspiring and innovative findings and provide excellent opportunities for sharing research practice.

Follow the brown bags free of charge via videoconferencing from our Ghent or Leuven  campus. The sessions are held once a month from 12.30 pm to 2 pm and are open to all researchers and faculty from Vlerick Business School, our parent universities and other academic institutions.

This session will be chaired by James P. Walsh (Ross School of Business, University of Michigan) and focuses on "Self-dealing CEOs and the people who study them".

About this session:

In this session, Jim Walsh will present the results of a new empirical study that investigates possible CEO self-dealing. At the same time, he will share some insight about the broad scholarly quest that animates a research question like this. The goal of the session is to give you both an appreciation for some current corporate governance research and a fruitful consideration of your own scholarly journeys.
