Course content

Following a number of high-profile organisational scandals, effective corporate governance and the need for transparency and fairness in business is high on the agenda around the world. This course will give you the ability to influence strategic decision making, understand risk control and ethical considerations when it comes to leadership, and manage relationships with investors and key stakeholders.

You will develop your understanding of general management theory, challenge current modes of thinking and generate new ideas to improve your professional practice. You will gain a highly specialised set of board-level leadership skills, enabling you to recognise, analyse and, ultimately, influence the factors governing corporate affairs.

The fast-track delivery of this course will allow you to study efficiently over an intense two-week study block on campus. You will then be suitably supported during the distance learning element of the course that follows.
