The main objective of the MCorpGov is to provide candidates with comprehensive knowledge of the theories, principles and practice of Corporate Governance. It focuses on ethical issues in the conduct and regulation of business. In addition, the structure of the course enables candidates to enhance their risk management skills. The knowledge and expertise acquired from MCorpGov is crucial for candidates who participate in the dynamic management of both private and public organizations.

The 2007 financial crisis that challenged many corporations, even national economies, underscores the importance of acquiring knowledge and expertise in developing a code of best practices in corporate governance, essential for the development of organizational policy and procedure. The financial crisis not only raised questions on the conduct of the affected corporations but had and is having a global impact on corporate and industry behaviour. Candidates equipped with a good knowledge of corporate governance would develop a clear understanding of corporate structures, processes, policies, roles and responsibilities, crucial for the proper direction and control of businesses and organizations not only for their immediate but also greater stakeholders.
