Open Universities Australia and Griffith University invites students to develop specialised knowledge of Corporate Governance in the Asia Pacific region – an increasingly important area of knowledge considering Asian businesses have come to dominate the global economy in the past decade.
By studying this unit, students will be encouraged to consider differences between Asian best practices and Western best practices within the field of corporate governance. They will be expected to familiarise themselves with the body of literature on the topic, and will be encouraged to analyse and synthesise academic papers on recent developments in Asian markets.
The unit takes a particular focus on Japan, China and India and will allow students to compare and contrast corporate governance and corporate social responsibility, and discuss the ethical basis for engaging in corporate governance. Shareholders and stakeholders, along with their responsibilities, and corporations’ responsibilities to them, will be considered.
Students will learn to identify threats and opportunities to Australian companies wishing to adopt and adapt Asian approaches to corporate governance over the course of this online unit. This will help to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to help their companies successfully enter Asia Pacific markets.

This online unit offered by Griffith University will give students valuable insight into the ways companies in the Asia Pacific region are controlled and directed. Students will focus on how companies in India, Japan and China employ corporate governance practices, which are often quite different to those found in Australian and other Western companies, in order to achieve strategic objectives.
Through developing specialised knowledge of corporate governance practices in the Asia Pacific, and learning about how Australian companies can integrate these practices into their own approaches to corporate governance, students will gain the knowledge and understanding necessary to engage in the current debate on corporate governance in the Asia Pacific. This will help them to develop an understanding of how best to enter Asian markets.
