USD 5,000

Venue: Nairobi Kenya & Online ZOOM

Corporate governance and risk management are critical topics that have recently started attracting more attention in business schools and among legislatures, with this trend only increasing. While there are different models for corporate governance and risk management, all of them aim at organizing the relation between company and stakeholders and controlling risks effectively.  What is more important is the fact that 'Governance, Risk Management, Compliance and Effective Internal Controls' are all part of one system. Unfortunately, not all companies have this avant-garde look towards this system.

This course includes discussions about board structure, committees and their functions while covering the detailed process of managing risks as per the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) requirements. In addition, the course includes a discussion on internal controls that are used to respond to the risks in different areas of the corporation. Compliance is also covered per latest developments.

Course Methodology

The course is built on presentations by the instructor and the participants and includes exercises and case studies to be discussed in the training.
