Corporate Governance: Principles, Policies and Best Practices - Virtual Learning

Why Attend

Corporate governance is a key topic that is attracting more attention in business schools and among legislatures, with this trend only increasing. While there are different models for corporate governance, all of them aim at organizing the relation between the company and the stakeholders. Governance starts with regulators and shareholders, but other stakeholders can affect its success. This course covers the reasons why governance fails and how to avoid that and improve it.   It also includes discussions about board structure, committees, their functions and duties, like the audit committee and the nomination and remuneration committees.
