Comments about MA Corporate Strategy and Governance - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    Unique to Nottingham University Business School, this is the only MA of its kind to combine two key interdependent topics—strategy and governance Corporate strategy is concerned with how organisations develop, grow and restructure; for example, by management buy-outs. Corporate governance is closely related to strategy: it is concerned with who controls a company, the relationship between owners and managers, who takes responsibility for decisions, and executive remuneration levels. In almost every country with an active stock market, there is increasing concern over corporate governance and pressure for reform. Measures that could be taken include improving financial disclosure and getting a better balance of power in the boardroom by separating the jobs of chair of the board and chief executive.
