With Corporate Governance issues becoming increasingly important across all areas of business, this diploma will impart the technical knowledge necessary to support the varied tasks required of senior executives in governance roles and current and prospective company directors.
This programme offers an in-depth exposure to all aspects of corporate governance, including the legal and regulatory framework relevant to company directors and board members and behavioural and psychological issues relevant to boards. The key strength of the programme is the peer-to-peer learning from the highly experienced participants in the Corporate Governance classes.
This programme is delivered over one year and takes place over two 12-week semesters: September–December and January–May. The workshops are held two evenings per week (generally Mondays and Tuesdays) from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
