Executive compensation has attracted much attention over the past few decades. However, a careful review of the literature reveals that there is a need for more empirical studies using different theoretical perspectives. In this thesis, we add theoretical insights from strategic management and analyze some of the determinants of executive compensation within a multidisciplinary framework. Using data from a relatively large sample of Canad ian-based metal mining firms, we examine and discuss the effects of firm strategy on executive compensation. Areas for future research are also discussed.
