Global Corporate Governance & Social Responsibility

10 Units

Global Corporate Governance and Social Responsibility examines how corporations respond to ethical dilemmas whilst taking stock of the needs of their various stakeholders and the expectations of national governments. This requires an understanding of the social responsibilities of business in a global environment. The roles of government regulation and community collaboration, as they impact on businesses operating across cultures, are also explored and current reforms of corporate governance are analysed.
