About the Programme
Corruption stifles economic growth, distorts competition and presents serious legal and reputational risks. It represents a major threat to the rule of law, sustainable development and drives away investors by increasing costs for companies, and further down the chain, customers. Corruption, in all facets, undermines good governance and market morality.
The SMU executive development programme on corruption attempts to help businesses and government to understand the manner in which corruption manifests in market frameworks; the means and methods for preventing corruption from arising and how to control its spread when corruption has become a feature of certain business relationships. This ‘realist’ programme will instruct participants how to manage and eradicate the destructive market and social consequences and costs of corruption as business.
