The course explores how governance and risk management are essential to an organisation’s improved corporate performance. This course offers an overview of the role of the board in governance and risk management; it examines current issues and explores best practice in strategic risk management. 



The focus of governments, regulators and security exchanges has been to improve the regulatory, compliance and risk management processes that underpin how a company conducts its business. 

Whether a company is publicly-listed, privately owned, global or state-owned, how it conducts its business in the short and long term will have a direct impact on its stakeholders – these include owners, management, shareholders, employees, financial institutions, suppliers, customers, governments and the community. Therefore a robust and accountable corporate governance framework must be in place to protect and balance the interests of its many stakeholders.
