Our course is taught in an integrated fashion, so that the links between the various subjects are considered in the context of corporate governance as a whole. It asks 'why?' rather than the 'how?' of a non-academic course.
Extensive use is made throughout each module of guest speakers with practical experience of corporate secretaryship or governance.
Uniquely, our Faculty teaches corporate secretaryship using the same 'blueprint' software used by major commercial organisations to fulfil their statutory record-keeping responsibilities.
