On 3 May the GTA University Centre is running a free 1-hour launch event (13:00-14:00) for people who wish to hear more about the MSc Corporate Governance Fast-Track programme.
The MSc will be taught in Guernsey by Bournemouth University, and starts on 7 September 2018.
At the launch you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the course and meet with other prospective students. A buffet lunch will be provided.
The Fast-Track programme runs across one academic year and provides a dual qualification, the MSc Corporate Governance and Graduate ICSA. The course is open to holders of full ICSA Professional, CCAB, ACCA, ACA, CIMA and equivalent.
The MSc Corporate Governance is a popular masters programme locally, providing you with a highly specialised set of skills and developing your ability to appreciate and influence the factors governing corporate affairs. It is essentially a mixture of finance, law and governance focusing on the role of corporate administration within private, public and not-for-profit organisations.
The course is taught in Guernsey, part-time over 1 academic year. Teaching will take place over roughly 10 two-day blocks (09:00 – 17:00) on Fridays and Saturdays, during the course of the academic year (September – May). On completion of the taught aspect of the course you then have approximately 6 months to undertake a supervised research project on a topic of your choice to achieve the MSc.
The MSc covers the following topics:
- Corporate Governance & Ethics: The objectives, principles and methods of Corporate Governance practice in different economic environments. You’ll show how governance and ethics can support managerial decision-making, particularly for risk management.
- Corporate Stewardship: Provides a thorough understanding of the effective administration of companies; looks at the fundamental concepts in the protection of intellectual property rights; and addresses the key issues in the nature and management of risk.
- International Corporate Finance: The primary aims of this unit are to address the critical importance of the corporate finance function within an internationally diverse corporation and to provide a framework to assist corporate decision-makers in a complex, dynamic and inherently uncertain external environment.
- Research Project: An opportunity to complete a significant piece of self-managed research in area that interests you.
