“My MBA allowed me to think more strategically and introduced me to many useful management tools. It also helped me to think about which parts of business learning actually pertain to SMEs. Being an engineer, the soft side of strategic thinking was particularly useful to me.

MODULES & LEARNING

Develop an understanding of the current issues in corporate governance facing directors and senior executive managers, and the role the board and directors play in ensuring effective, ethical and good governance practice.

Address stakeholder management in a critical and integrated way by developing and addressing theory, values and techniques for engaging stakeholders. You'll also learn how stakeholder management relates to corporate responsibility, governance and leadership.

You will carry out an in-depth research project in a subject area that is appropriate to the course and of particular interest to you.

Our course will provide you with current theoretical knowledge, which has practical value for any middle or senior manager, executive, or self-employed entrepreneur looking to develop a practical understanding of corporate governance. You will work with and share best practice ideas with fellow peers, and will have the opportunity to attend guest lectures with experts from industry.

The fast track delivery of this course will allow you to study more efficiently and effectively over an intense two week study block at our University supported after this by distance learning.
