Subject outline

In this subject, you will be provided with an overview of the new and emerging field of global corporate governance. Numerous corporate failures and environmental disasters in recent times have provided a surge of interest in ensuring companies reflect not only regulatory standards but also conduct their operations to reflect community and society norms. By the conclusion of this subject you should be able to add value to your organisations through your understanding of corporate governance in a global context and of the role of the board of directors and management. Working independently, and working together with others, you will learn about corporate governance through solving business problems and develop ethical, critical thinking and problem solving skills required to add value to organisations.
