Governance & Compliance Society

Corporate Governance is an increasingly vital area of today's corporations and a must to learn about by business and law students.

Corporate Governance is an increasingly vital area of today's corporations and a must to learn about by business and law students. In order to boost the awareness of the core principles or Corporate Governance and Compliance in the UK as well as tendencies of their development across the glob, the Society would organise events inviting prominent personalities from leading legal firms and ICSA to explain the importance of the subjects to BPP students to be later implemented in their business and legal careers.
