Corporate Governance has become a relevant issue in the Financial Literature. However, teaching on Corporate Finance is not keeping up with this educational change, and textbooks on Corporate Finance remain quite standard in their contents. Only a few exceptions incorporate Corporate Governance into the syllabus on undergraduate education and, as far as we know, none of them goes further into its implications for Corporate Finance. This paper discusses what the research on Corporate Governance has to offer classroom teachers, and recommends the incorporation of Corporate Governance issues and their implications for Corporate Finance in textbooks.
