It is essentially aimed at helping students manage their organisation and improve its effectiveness.

Our Social Accounting & Audit programme will help to prove, improve, and account for the difference an organisation is making, helping leaders to plan and manage their organisation, as well as demonstrate what the organisation has achieved.
