Interest in Corporate Governance has grown rapidly in the last few years fuelled by high profile corporate collapses and financial crises caused by corporate scandals. The module builds on sound theoretical base to encompass the latest developments in the field worldwide. It takes an international approach to corporate governance, contextualising its development and providing a stimulating range of academic and empirical practitioner research, and topical case studies.

It also introduces institutional and legal systems from both government and firm’s viewpoints that influence the effectiveness of corporate governance. The aims of the course are to discuss financial economics theories which constitute theoretical foundation of corporate governance. The theoretical study is supported by empirical evidence worldwide in which corporate governance develops by examining institutional structure and capital market for various countries at macro level and the firms’ structure which influence the effectiveness of corporate governance at micro level.

For your information, all our courses will be offered online and hopefully on campus through our new hybrid rooms but so far, all courses showed as “Online” will remain so. Should we decide to close a module, please rest assured that we will offer you a replacement or a refund.
