Strategic Management & Governance

Delivered virtually, 28 September - 1 October 2020.

‘The King’s Strategic Management & Governance Programme is unique in bringing together issues of governance and compliance, comparative management and global business strategy – critical areas of business that need to be understood and integrated into daily working practices to succeed at the highest levels. This programme will enable managers and leaders with the credibility and capability needed to deliver in leadership roles and add value to the organisation.’

Professor Igor Filatotchev, Programme Director

How prepared are you, as a manager or leader, to represent an organisation at the most senior levels? Could you recognise and apply the principles of good corporate governance? Are you confident in your understanding of the broader critical issues of governance, compliance and corporate social responsibility, and how to apply this thinking to a global business strategy for the organisation?

The King’s Strategic Management & Governance Programme enables this strategic leadership mindset, empowering executives to operate confidently at a senior level with internal partners and external stakeholders

The September 2020 programme will take place virtually, with no attendance required in person at King’s Business School, London.
