The Economics of Firm Culture (24 October, Barcelona)

The Economics of Firm Culture (24 October, Barcelona)

July 07 2019

Why should firms care about corporate culture? Can they simply rely on corporate governance and incentives to ensure that management and employees maximize the objective of the company? When is culture a better way to shape behavior? When are incentives more effective?

In this lecture, Professor Sapienza will provide a unifying framework to understand the role corporate culture plays in shaping behavior within firms. The lecture will also review the empirical evidence on corporate culture and direction for future work.
