Programme Objective

In recent years, several high profile cases of corrupt practices have been reported in the news. When such case surfaces, questions are often asked how it could happen and if it could have been avoided. With recent preventive measures implementing in the public sector, how should individuals react to the changes and should the commercial sector have similar measures?

  1. Knowledge and skills to identify possibilities of corrupt practices;

  2. Practical tools to improve the controls and management process, so as to minimise and/or prevent such corrupt practices from happening
