I have heard about (corporate office, corporate finance, corporate ****).
But I don't know what it is.
In dictionary, I found : corporate -- relating to a large company:
But this is not quite enough to understand the meaning of (corporate office, corporate image, corporate finance).
So, could you explain, please?
The word corporate can be an adjective or a noun. It is connected with (a) a company or (b) a group or with (c) business in general as opposed to or which makes it different from private or public (in its legal form). Thus it can be any area of business:
1. Corporate advertising, bond, communication, culture, debt, finance.
2. Corporate Governance has been a very important issue and part of university syllabus.
3. Other areas can be:
Corporate identity, image, ladder, raider, responsibility, strategy, sector, structure, veil, venturing.

In the case of "corporate office," we often use this terminology in order to distinguish it from other parts of a company. For example, McDonald's has many restaurants around the world, but if you were going to visit their headquarters, you'd probably say something like "I have an appointment at McDonalds' Corporate Office in Chicago."
