Auditing Corporate Governance

Corporate governance relates to the direction and control of organizations and their activities. Good governance encourages organizational success and poor governance often contributes to organizational failure.

This new and hugely topical course really puts the “G” into ESG!

Spend a full day thinking about corporate governance concepts, best practices, and current developments from across the private, public and third sectors and consider internal audit’s role in this critical subject, in an interactive and participative style.


This course will improve your ability to provide effective, professional insight and internal audit assurance that moves beyond a tick box approach, identifying the real underlying corporate governance risks faced by organizations.
