Corporate Governance and Performance: causation?
12-13 November 2010

An academic conference in the Yale ECGI Oxford (YEO) series organised by the Millstein Center for Corporate Governance and Performance, the European Corporate Governance Institute and the Said Business School, University of Oxford to be held at the Yale School of Management. Attendance is by invitation only.

Background | Schedule, Papers and Presentations


Every two years, the Yale School of Management's Millstein Center and Oxford's Said Business School hold a research conference to address leading topics in global corporate governance. From 2010, the event expands to include the European Corporate Governance Institute.

This year's conference, YEO 2010, focuses on perhaps the most elusive issue in the field: whether or to what extent corporate governance may be identified as having a causal relationship with corporate performance. The organisers have invited some of the world's top scholars along with rising academic stars to tackle this research challenge.

The event is open to academics and practitioners by invitation.  The dinner in particular is structured as an opportunity to mix private sector leaders with academics.

The organisers are administering the conference through a joint oversight committee of the three institutions.  A separate Scientific Committee (see below) has selected papers and discussants.  Operational responsibilities for YEO 2010 are split. Yale's Millstein Center is responsible for all on-site administration and logistics.  The ECGI is responsible for online facilities including online registration.
