Corporate governance is the way a corporation polices itself. In short, it is a method of governing the company like a sovereign state, instating its own customs, policies and laws to its employees from the highest to the lowest levels. Corporate governance is intended to increase the accountability of your company and to avoid massive disasters before they occur. The importance of corporate governance in today’s progressive and aggressive business environment cannot be denied. This course is designed for both directors, management, and those with responsibilities for introducing Corporate Governance into organizations. The program will enable you to understand the importance of corporate governance, identify the corporate failure determinants and discuss the best practices available.
At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate the comprehensive understanding of corporate governance best practices and implement them within the institution
- Determine the major functions and responsibilities of the board
- Handle corporate governance issues and adopt internal control systems
- Structure and communicate corporate governance procedures to stakeholders
