26816 Applied Governance and Risk Management

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



This subject provides knowledge and skills to design or improve enterprise and risk governance systems and work effectively within them. It is focused on enterprise governance operating models and considers the interface between these systems and board governance operating models. Successful students are prepared for not only their futures in working within governance systems but also with a consideration of what those future systems could look like.

Students have the opportunity to condition their aptitude and responsibility to govern as executives, entrepreneurs or enterprise owners effectively. Students also learn how to navigate effective governance and risk systems beyond the procedural or compliance aspects of carrying out governance roles.

Students apply their thinking and knowledge while progressively identifying a concrete governance improvement or transformation opportunity in their workplace or their professional or entrepreneurial activities. Through reflective practice, students heighten their self-awareness and appreciation of how governing is different from managing. They also develop a more rounded, holistic view of leadership and governance systems and how to navigate and design these to improve enterprise effectiveness.
