HKBU School of Business launches master’s programme In Corporate Governance and Compliance

22 Mar, 2017
HKBU School of Business announced today the launch of the MSc in Corporate Governance and Compliance (Programme) in response to the pressing industry demand for qualified talent in the field of corporate governance, corporate secretaryship, risk management, and compliance. The first intake of 40 will be admitted in September 2017.

This new Programme, fully accredited by The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (HKICS) and The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators in the United Kingdom (ICSA), prepares directors (including independent non-executive directors), company secretaries, and professionals in related fields to strengthen sustainability and accountability of their organisations. Graduates will be well-quipped to assume leadership roles, from management to the boardroom, from businesses to non-profits.

Strategically integrating business and legal disciplines, students will obtain a degree at master’s level in one and a half years on a part-time basis, and be eligible to apply for full exemption from the qualifying examinations of HKICS and ICSA. Graduates who go on to become members of HKICS are qualified for appointment as company secretaries of listed companies under the Listing Rules of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.
