Graduate Certificate in Corporate Governance (C5E)

The Graduate Certificate in Corporate Governance aims to offer you a chance to develop or upgrade skills in corporate governance. Specifically the course intends to identify challenges for company directors and managers in corporate governance, and develop critically evaluative skills as corporate governance evolves. 

The units will be offered using flexible learning methods and will embrace general corporate governance concerns in the evaluation of specific areas such as accountability, risk, sustainability and the regulatory environment. The intention is to provide you with the skills required to approach corporate governance issues in their work environments. 

These units will be taught by qualified staff with the appropriate knowledge and skills in each area. Delivery will incorporate educational technology in a flexible platform allowing you to undertake the course at your own pace, and in your own time and environment. Units may also incorporate optional face to face discussion seminars. All assessment will be continuous including the delivery of electronic assignments, and in some units, preparation of an online presentation.

This course is currently only available part time and is full fee-paying, which means that you will be charged at the full fee-paying rate listed for each unit.
