Companies exist in all parts of business and society. All who wish to participate effectively in a business environment need to understand the general nature and operation of companies. This unit focuses on key company law issues relevant to business. Students learn about the process and effects of incorporation; the roles, rights and responsibilities of directors and members; and the ways in which the activities of companies are regulated. Each of these topics is addressed in an interactive setting, with case studies relating to current business developments forming an integral part of the learning activities in this unit.
