Corporate Governance and Business Ethics (MSc)

Programme status: Fully Approved

The main aim of this Master's degree is to provide a postgraduate-level education for those interested in studying the complex and changing relationships between business corporations, their stakeholders (shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, etc.) and the societies in which they operate.

The economic and financial aspects of corporate governance relationships have long been of concern to those in the business and investment communities, and in recent years the social, political and moral aspects of these relationships have also become a major public concern. This programme aims to address both these sets of issues and to meet the needs of people wishing to engage critically with the policy aspects of corporate governance as well as those wishing to be involved professionally in the direction and regulation of companies and the management or trusteeship of pension funds and other investments.

The programme is available 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time and combines coursework and independent research leading to a dissertation.
