This unit will provide students with an introduction to key elements of effective corporate governance and will familiarise them with the concept of corporate regulation. Important areas of corporations law will be examined, with particular emphasis on the duties of directors and managers. Aspects such as incorporation, share capital and membership, company constitutions, agency and contracting, dividends, fundraising through share issues and by debt, shareholder rights and the insolvency and winding-up of companies will be addressed. Stock exchange regulation and corporate social responsibility will also be explored. Students will consider the types of rules and behaviours that constitute good corporate governance, equipping them to become effective business managers and 21st Century citizens.
