In today’s rapidly changing world, businesses are increasingly subject to disruptive shifts. Businesses that do not keep reinventing themselves by the minute become obsolete in no time. So, difficult choices must frequently be made. Stakeholder value addition or destruction are consequences of such choices.
Organisations with robust corporate governance mechanisms create value for all stakeholders. Knowing the interplay between market forces and stakeholder expectations is crucial to implementing good corporate governance. There is a huge demand in the business world for experts who can develop and deploy good governance mechanisms in real time.
Our Master’s Programme in Corporate Governance is designed for students that thrive in a multi-cultural and international environment. As a student, you can look forward to two years of stimulating on- and off-campus learning experiences.
The schematic outline below covers the compulsory courses in the program, and offered CG related elective ones. In addition to these courses, students have to take a total of 30 ECTS elective courses. This includes 6 ECTS that must be studies in some language. We strongly recommend the Corporate Governance students to take the course Academic Writing.
