    Our MSc Corporate Governance course is accredited by The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland (CGIUKI).


Delivered in Guernsey by Bournemouth University, this exciting course will provide you with a highly specialised set of skills and develop your ability to appreciate and influence the factors governing corporate affairs.

We developed the programme in close collaboration with the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), and one of the attractions of the course is that it produces a manager who has competence in all areas of business. Overall the course offers:

An academically rigorous and highly practical qualification (MSc)
Development of professional and managerial abilities
Qualification with graduate status of ICSA (GradICSA).
It is essentially a mixture of finance, law and governance focusing on the role of corporate administration. In this context, ‘corporate’ is used in its wider sense and therefore includes private, public and not-for-profit organisations.


Only applicable for GTA University Centre students (Channels Islands).

A Bachelors Honours degree, 2:2 or above, or equivalent.

If you lack the formal academic qualifications needed to enter a postgraduate or post-experience degree, there are several alternative routes to follow - some based on experience. Contact the Future Students Enquiry team for more information.

Enterprise Risk Management: Understand the different theoretical and practical aspects of identifying and managing risks, including how risk management links to compliance management and complements effective corporate governance in organisations, dependencies and complexities of several types of risks, and the need to establish a single framework, i.e. an Enterprise Risk Management system, within the organisation.
