The Master of Corporate Governance provides a comprehensive view of the system of checks and balances that exist to ensure corporate actors including directors and executive officers exercise their powers legitimately and responsibly. It offers insights for all stakeholders in the management of organisations – including, but not limited to, corporations.

Corporate governance is a dynamic discipline that interacts with the social, digital and business model landscape in which it is placed. Innovation and technology impact best practices in corporate governance. Our unique placement within the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship at Swinburne, coupled with insights from our industry partners, ensures that this degree is practical, current and pro-actively focused.

You will acquire skills in all aspects of corporate governance including leadership; the legal obligations of company officers and directors; accounting fundamentals, risk decision-making; and management, strategy and corporate culture. You will also have the opportunity to undertake governance projects in both profit and non-profit organisational contexts.
