The Graduate Certificate aims to offer 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 graduates 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 students to undertake the course at their own pace, and in their 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.
