6 Credits (ECTS)
Corporate Secretarial Practice
The module is rooted in the discipline of corporate governance in a context of international sustainability. Corporate governance is essentially about how entities (in the public and voluntary sectors) are governed (as distinct from the way in which they are managed). Sustainability is a term that incorporates good governance practices in the context of economic, environmental and social issues. However, while set within the broad considerations of corporate governance and sustainability, the module focuses on the role of the company secretary. Thus, while considering the legal duties, functions, obligations and role of the company secretary in corporate governance, the module places and considers these issues against a wider international sustainability/ethical backdrop.
Candidates who apply for this course must possess one of the following:

Preference is given to applicants having a Level 6 degree in a discipline related to the study programme and a minimum of 3 years’ work experience in management.
The target group focuses primarily on public administration practitioners, managers and officials from ministries, local authorities and public and private bodies, public leaders and CEOs from the public and private sector, policy practitioners from the private sector and civil society organisations.
