Why Study Corporate Governance?
All aspects of an organisation have an impact on and are impacted by Corporate Governance. These aspects include but are not limited to leadership, strategy, and the board of directors. IIE MSA appreciates that the way businesses enact Corporate Governance is not consistent and that this contributes to corporate failure. With Corporate Governance being imperative to an organisation’s success, this field of study is a step in the direction of pushing organisations and their leaders towards ethical and profitable frontiers.
The IIE Postgraduate Diploma in Corporate Governance offered at IIE MSA assumes limited prior knowledge to the field and is suitable for working professionals with limited governance experience right through to directors of boards with a wealth of experience seeking to broaden and update their horizon of knowledge. With 8 modules comprehensively tackling the core issues in Corporate Governance, this qualification leaves the learner with practical skills to combat challenges in governance in their own places of work.
The programme consists of the following modules:
- Ethics and Business Ethics
- Corporate Governance
- The Legislative Environment to Corporate Governance
- Board Matters
- Leadership, Directors and Officers
- The Combined Assurance Model
- Strategy, Stakeholders and Risk
- Financial, Sustainability and Integrated Reporting
The IIE Postgraduate Diploma in Corporate Governance is an NQF Level 8 qualification. This gives students successful in this programme access to the IIE Masters of Business Administration and the IIE Masters of International Business programmes offered at IIE MSA.
What are My Career Outcomes?
