Course content

International Corporate Governance Law impacts on all manner of companies who need to adjust to the environmental, ethical and other duties of incorporation. The existence of International Corporate businesses, some of which may have a turnover in excess of the economic wealth of some developing countries, inevitably begs the question: for whose benefit should business corporations be run? Should they be regulated, and if so, how?

This course provides an opportunity for students to study and discuss assumptions and underlying concepts and will also enable students to debate the fundamental issues surrounding executive remuneration.

If you choose this course you could benefit from:

  • an in-depth understanding and analysis of international corporate governance through the study of a range of contemporary international modules in areas such as corporate governance, environmental law, competition law and corporate crime;
  • extensive guidance on research, study and writing skills together with research design and methods, in preparation for writing assessments and researching and submitting your dissertation;
  • the study of a range of contemporary international law modules to allow specialism in corporate governance, competition law, and the regulation of activities affecting the international and criminal obligations of businesses;
  • the study of legal subjects and research and academic skills alongside home and EU students and a wide range of international students, thus gaining a rewarding and varied academic and personal experience.
