OBJECTIVES The AAG curriculum is designed to motivate and inspire students to think and search for innovative responses to changes in the contemporary societal, business and organisational context. During the programme students will learn new subjects and, through these, will gather managerial competencies necessary to assist organisations, professionals and public actors in developing and implementing solutions to cope with the challenges and demands of society, business and organisations. In particular, the AAG offers an internationally-infused learning and teaching environment which is aimed at providing our students with the knowledge, skills and tools required to achieve successful and satisfying careers in their areas of study. The AAG is organized in two main "majors" that each student can choose after the successful completion of the first year modules. The first year of the programme, which is the same for the two curricula, provides students with the overall knowledge and understanding of the issues related to corporate governance, accountability, management control and international accounting. These issues are then expanded in the second year when students can choose between two "majors" which are designed to offer more specialized competencies and skills in two different but related areas of study. The two majors are respectively: Sustainability, Accountability and Governance. The aim of the SAG curriculum is to provide students with the competencies (in terms of strategic, management and control knowledge, skills and tools) necessary to envisage, design and implement innovative solutions for governing SD-related issues in the daily management of organizations.
