Professional Course in Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance systems have evolved over centuries, often in response to corporate failures or systemic crises. However, it is only recently that corporate governance has emerged as a discipline in its own right. Corporate Governance is now linked to national governance. Good corporate governance cannot be regarded as a luxury or an option for businesses in this 21st century. For investors, clear evidence of good corporate governance provides a better climate of investment. Good corporate governance means good business. In order to fill the vacuum of systematic training for corporate Directors, the Institute of Directors-Ghana has developed this professional course on corporate governance. The course content covers what one needs to know as a practising director.

The objectives are to: Introduce professionalism into directorship; Improve the skills and competence of directors; Add value to corporate activities by directors; Adopt best practice in all aspects of business operations.
This is a weekend programme which is conducted on Saturdays. The duration is four (4) Saturdays and is equivalent to thirty (30) credit hours.
Where participants miss a lecture for just cause, provision will be made for them to complete it during the weekday to assist them to be abreast with the programme.
The IoD-G unique professional training is endowed with a faculty composed of talented and broadly experienced professionals. These professionals are lawyers, accountants, bankers and other officials drawn from both private and public sectors of the economy. They have excellent skills in teaching and a deep belief in good corporate governance.
Board and Council members, Chief Executives, Senior Managers, Board Secretaries, Partners, Entrepreneurs, Professionals, Academicians, Clergy and Civil Society.
Participants will be given assignments which should be submitted for grading before completion of the programme. Assignments are compulsory and form part of the programme. There is an end of programme competence assessment.
Each participant receives comprehensive course materials containing lecture notes, articles, case studies and essential documents for use during the training programme. The materials also serve as a reference manual thereafter.
A Professional Certificate will be issued to participants who successfully complete the course. Such participants will be admitted to membership of the Institute of Directors-Ghana. Members can use the designation MID after their names.
Attaining high level of expertise and proficiency by improving upon one’s knowledge and skills; Coaching individual directors to add value to corporate activities; Networking with other directors both local on the local and international scene; Receiving newsletters and publications on corporate governance worldwide
