Governance is about ensuring that public and private organisations have appropriate structures, processes and systems in place to support effective decision-making. The field is influenced by ongoing changes in legal and regulatory frameworks, machinery of government, institutional cultures, community expectations, government requirements and shareholder expectations. A particular focus is the similarities and differences between corporate governance in private and public sector environments. Because governance is integral to organisational leadership and decision-making, this subject lends itself to analysis of evolving issues, problems and solutions. This subject therefore consists of a series of Modules organised around a postgraduate colloquium involving invited eminent speakers who will address topics in the light of their own experience.
1. Each candidate will have a heightened understanding of the principles, practices and issues in contemporary governance in the public and private sectors, including where the two are differentiated.
2. They will have the opportunity to discuss and debate governance with speakers who are actively involved in the discipline and practice at senior levels.
3. The emphasis will be on contemporary and emerging challenges and esponses, analysed in the context of wider trends in governance in the public and private sectors in Australia and overseas.
Normally 39 hours of classroom and structured learning per semester.
