21874 Corporate Governance and the Sustainable Enterprise

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject examines best practice management and oversight in the face of new priorities and challenges for top teams and boards, resource constraints and other transformative trends, shifting stakeholder expectations, new thinking on concepts of organisational value and performance, and on the purpose of business itself. The central theme is the conflicting obligations and expectations faced by managers and board directors in dealing with these emerging ‘soft law’ issues. The subject provides contemporary perspectives that build on other EMBA subjects (eg Integrative Strategy and Leadership, Strategic Value Chain Management, and Strategic Marketing). The subject is divided into three integrated components: the sustainability imperative and how to manage this complex agenda within organisations, the role and responsibilities of the Board, and the core principles of corporate governance law and regulation.
