MAN3611 Corporate Governance&Social Responsibility
Credit Points: 15
The world in which we live has become more complex. Business now operates in a global economy, and with that comes the development of a world in which nations are more connected and interdependent than at any time in history. This is transforming the relationship business has with many individuals and organisations in society. There is now greater demand on business to demonstrate business practices that are environmentally, economically and socially responsible. Events such as the Global Financial Crisis, the collapse of corporations such as Enron and ecological disasters such as the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, mean there are increasing demands for corporations to act in an ethically and socially responsible manner. This unit examines the corporate governance challenges facing global operations and how this is influencing the nature of strategic decision making by business leaders.
