Corporate Failure at Board Level: an Ethical and Corporate Governance Perspective

You are required to choose an organisation that has been involved in corporate failure at board level. You are required to critically discuss from an ethical and corporate governance perspective the key failings in the organisation that lead to such an event occurring. Your essay must include obvious links to academic literature and ethical and corporate governance theories.

The essay should be well-presented, should contain a well-informed critical analysis, and should show a good standard of academic referencing.

All students must submit an electronic copy in word format (NOT PDF) via GCU LEARN and Turnitin UK along with your reference list.
