About Dr. Yehia El-Husseiny’s research
Corporate governance has been rendered one of the most momentous topics mooted in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. Good corporate governance practices help in boosting investor confidence and reassuring shareholders that their capital is protected.

The board of directors has the ultimate authority and responsibility to provide stewardship, oversight and control, and to protect the rights of the shareholders. The board is the brain of the company. They play a pivotal role in governing the company and affecting its performance.

The findings from the doctorate research of Dr. El-Husseiny not only assert that corporate governance attributes have a significant positive impact on the financial performance of companies, but also suggest that the financial performance of the past should be pondered to control for endogeneity and the dynamic nature of corporate governance.
