With the world still recovering from the effects of the Global Financial Crisis and high levels of government debt, it is important that we are all able to learn lessons from the events of 2007 to 2010.
Corporate Governance is about the processes and systems that control activity and behaviour in complex organisations. Effective control and direction of Governance Structures inhibit poor performance whilst attempting to establish and meet legitimate objectives. The different elements of good corporate governance enable the proper distribution of authority, rights and responsibilities. Levels of responsibility among different participants in the corporation are discussed as a backdrop to the rules and procedures for making key decisions in corporate affairs.

These participant decision makers, such as Senior Executives (board members, other directors, budget holding managers) are fully responsible to other stakeholders , who include shareholders, suppliers, creditors, auditors, regulators, and the client base.

The schedule of course topics invites students to review risk, compliance and control as part of a curriculum devoted to a better understanding of the nature of Banking and allied Financial Institutions. The topics of Banking Management and adherence to good practice from the OECD and the Basel Committee leads to an opportunity to learn about Best Practice, how to monitor the control environment successfully and deliver a deeper Corporate Social Responsibility.

This two week programme is designed to create a real understanding of control; adding knowledge of what detailed administration, audit and scrutiny can add to an organisation; while requiring a strong and deliverable ethos of leadership in compliance and capacity building as a Financial Institution. The importance of good governance and higher levels of internal control are just some of the lessons that come out of this course.
