Description

Internal governance refers to how policies are established and operations are monitored to ensure that employees and management act reasonably, ethically, and within the law. With this course, you will learn the three ways internal governance can be established in organizations. You will also learn the important topics that should be covered by codes of conduct, policies, and procedures. You will then look into the corporate culture and the role of management in the governance of an organization.

Stakeholders can be viewed as close or expansive. This course will teach you that close stakeholders include groups or individuals on which the organization is dependent for its continued survival while expansive stakeholders are groups or individuals who can affect the achievement of an organization's objectives. You will also look into market failure, laws and regulations, consumer protection, the influence of suppliers, employment law, institutional investors, and financial institutions.

This course clearly discusses the two main aspects of internal and external forms of governance. You will learn the relationships between managers, employees, and the owners of a firm as well as the system of laws, regulations, and market forces that ensure a fair and transparent organization. You will also learn about watchdog organizations which are usually driven by non-profit groups or government agencies whose purpose is to alert the public about the misdeeds of organizations.
