  • Delivery:
    Part-Time

Delivered in Guernsey by Bournemouth University, this exciting course will provide you with a highly specialised set of skills and develop your ability to appreciate and influence the factors governing corporate affairs.

We developed the programme in close collaboration with the The Chartered Governance Institute (ICSA), and one of the attractions of the course is that it produces a manager who has competence in all areas of business. Overall the course offers:

  • An academically rigorous and highly practical qualification (MSc)
  • Development of professional and managerial abilities
  • Qualification with graduate status of ICSA (GradCG).

It is essentially a mixture of finance, law and governance focusing on the role of corporate administration. In this context, ‘corporate’ is used in its wider sense and therefore includes private, public and not-for-profit organisations.
