Course Description

Organisations, businesses, and entire nations are run by a combination of systems, decisions and activities known as governance. In this course, you’ll examine political power, public policy, political institutions, ideas and processes, and their transformations at national and global levels. You’ll learn how organisations, including government bodies, can benefit from high-performing leaders and strong internal systems.

This is the only course of its kind in WA, exploring both political and economic forces to help you develop new ways of thinking about what shapes the world.

You can expand your career opportunities through a range of programs at our Sir Walter Murdoch School of Public Policy and International Affairs, or explore the social, political, historical, environmental and economic forces at play in Asia through our Asia Research Centre.
