Discuss your thoughts on whether CEOs' exceptionally high pay is economically justified. Explain your rationale.

I do not think it is justified, for several reasons. I think that the CEO's that are paid ridiculous amounts of money are doing so while only thinking of how much they can personally make off of the company. The first thought of a CEO should be to do what is best for his or her company, and to act in the best interest of the stakeholders. Taking a pay in excess of several million dollars is not, nor ever has ...

Corporate Governance Benchmarking

Corporate Governance Benchmarking
After reviewing the McBride Financial Services scenario, you will identify several issues that directly connect to the concepts in the mind maps for Weeks 1 through 3. In addition to reading the assigned text materials to develop knowledge about the concepts, a thorough master's-level education requires the development of effective research skills. In this assignment, you will work collaboratively to create a rich source from which you will individually develop alternative solutions for McBride Financial Services.
Step 1
Individually, identify and research two companies that have faced specific issues related to those you identified in the scenario and connected with the course concepts. For each company selected, discuss the following in a 350-word synopsis: (A) issue identified in the scenario that is also facing the company, (B) how the company responded to the issue, and (C) outcomes of the company's response to the issue. Thus, each team member should have two 350-word synopses, one for each company, which provides the information identified. To avoid duplication of efforts, each team member should identify, to the team, the companies he or she will be researching before doing this part of the assignment.
Step 2
As a team, based upon the information gathered from the individual work done in Step 1, prepare a 1,050-word to 1,400-word analysis that synthesizes the key findings. As a team, using the companies researched: (A) identify the key course concepts and (B) compare and contrast the practices of each company related to those concepts. Appropriately cite all references used.
Step 3
The team will submit a final composition which consists of a title page, the team's overall analysis, the individual company synopses (with the preparer of each synopsis identified), and an appropriate reference page. As a guideline, a team of five will submit roughly 13-14 pages of material as well as a title page and reference page.
