  • An understanding of the characteristics of an effective board
  • Sound knowledge of financial terms and concepts
  • The issues and processes associated with formulating strategic and business plans and achieving strategic leadership.

This is covered in a series of four courses and leads to the Certificate examination. The Certificate in Corporate Governance Programme has the following features:

  • A core staff of qualified instructors. Many of the instructors will have attended a Training of Trainers Programme led by an International Finance Corporation Master Trainer.
  • An advisory group consisting of both regional and international persons to guide the programme.
  • The examination structure is based upon UK National Occupational Standards for Corporate Governance as our basis for us to accredit successful candidates.

In order to ensure high participation rates, reduce costs for participants, increase flexibility in dates and increase flexibility in educational choice, the participants can choose when to do the different components and then decide when to be certified.
