This is a cross-disciplinary subject that combines academic insights and practical business experience into governance, leadership and risk management, with an emphasis on Asia. The subject examines how leadership and governance can impact risk management strategies. A key focus of the subject is the importance of cultural intelligence in developing leaders who are adept at navigating the complex personal, institutional, political, social and economic environments in Asia. Another focus is on the risk perspectives of the newly globalising Asian businesses –China, East Asia and India in particular. A third component of this subject is the typical governance structures in Asia in contrast to the Anglo-Saxon corporate governance structures and legislation.
