The Professional Directors’ Program aims to expand your knowledge and appreciation of the role of a corporate director. This flagship program is designed to help professionalize the practice of corporate directorship and promote good corporate governance practices in the boardroom -- transcending from compliance to performance and board effectiveness.

Lectures, case studies, panel discussions, structured learning experiences, and simulation are facilitated by faculty who are recognized for their expertise. The 5-day program will also provide you with various tools (charter, scorecard, roadmap and checklists) that will allow you to develop guidelines on strategy, policy, monitoring and accountability.
