Corporate governance is an integral part of every business and having knowledge in this field will enhance your career opportunities and also provide a good foundation should you wish to operate your own business in the future. 

This specialisation comprises four units that provide in-depth knowledge of corporate governance to complement your overall area of study. You will explore the structures and processes that enable the direction and control of companies.

The knowledge you gain can be applied to a variety of industries, given that all businesses need people who have the knowledge to improve corporate performance and accountability, mitigate risks and safeguard stakeholders.

Unlike the Business Law major, this specialisation is designed for students in any field of study who want to learn the basic principles of good corporate governance while developing their career in the commercial world.

Why study

Corporate Governance is particularly useful in a business sector by enhancing corporate decision making, aiding success and growth, and achieving organisational and shareholder objectives. It is also important in maintaining investor confidence.

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
