Take an international look at the key areas of corporate governance and corporate and commercial law.

Gain a critical understanding of the process of corporate globalization through in-depth coverage of the main topics in corporate governance and commercial law.

Throughout this course you'll explore the differences in laws and governance in countries across the globe, and how they respond to economic and social pressures.
