Aims and Characteristics


Programme Aims

The Master of Corporate Governance (MCG) programme aims to provide an educational pathway for business or business-related degree graduates to specialise in corporate governance. It equips corporate administrators, including chief executive officers, directors, financial controllers, treasurers, company secretaries and holders of other key corporate positions, with a sound knowledge of, and competency in, corporate governance so that they can effectively participate in the planning, implementation and monitoring of corporate financial policies and strategies.

On completion of the MCG programme, graduates will be able to:

  • Appreciate the importance of business ethics pertaining to various corporate governance issues;

  • Comprehend best practices in respect of corporate governance, as required to achieve higher standards of corporate behaviour;

  • Develop a critical law and regulation insight and appreciate the role of law and regulation in corporate governance;

  • Apply the corporate accounting and finance concepts and financial reporting practices in accounting and financial planning, control and decision making;

  • Comprehend and appreciate management accounting controls, information systems, principles of organization and strategy theories and their application to corporate management;

  • Explain and apply current Hong Kong taxation law and practices to advise on tax implications in corporate management and decision making;

  • Comprehend and appreciate the legal aspects involved in company matters and the corporate governance system of both Hong Kong and PRC companies; and

  • Fulfil exemption requirements of relevant professional bodies, including the Chartered Governance Institute, and the Hong Kong Chartered Governance Institute (HKCGI).

Professional Recognition

Graduates of the programme may also be eligible for professional examination exemption in respect of other professional bodies, such as ACCA (exemption for certain specific papers in its foundation examinations) and CPA (Australia) (depends on the graduate's undergraduate curriculum, exemption for six to eight papers in its foundation examinations).
