Course summary

Corporate Governance & Accountability will give you a theoretical and practical understanding of corporate governance and accountability, together with an international perspective on some of the most important issues facing global business and society today.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Good corporate governance promotes fairness in the economy and is essential in modern society. This programme will teach you about the main principles of finance and governance, the relationship between state, society and business and also aspects of business law, management and ethics.
  • You will gain a detailed understanding of why corporate governance has become important, what the challenges are to enforce it and how it has changed over time.
  • You will develop a good understanding of best practice in accounting and by the end of the programme have an ability to critically challenge accounting practices through a case study approach.
  • Your studies will balance theory, research and business related examples to enable you to develop analytical skills needed for the effective management of governance and accountability in complex environments.
  • You will learn how to manage and control the risks involved in organisations.
  • Classes on key courses are small, to facilitate an interactive learning environment.
  • This programme will be of interest if you are considering a career in the ethical or compliance functions of businesses, such as those in internal audit and the compliance and assurance service sector, including relevant management consultancy. It will also be of interest to non-financial managers who find themselves taking on compliance roles.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Upon completing the programme, you will have a competitive edge when looking for roles in the financial sector relating to corporate governance, general management, compliance, auditing and risk management. We have a dedicated careers and employability team who provide 1-2-1 support and advice, group workshops, employer events on campus and networking opportunities throughout the year to help you with your career prospects.
