The Directors College
Delivering Canada’s University Accredited Chartered Director Development Program
The Directors College Chartered Director (C.Dir.) Program delivers an accredited corporate director development program that leads to a university designation Chartered Director (C.Dir.). It is a 5 Module residential program that is designed to create an environment for innovative and independent thinking.
In each module, participants learn concepts and best practices from a practitioner; discover what leading boards are doing today from experienced chairs and CEOs (in residence at The Directors College); and apply this knowledge immediately in case studies, behavioral sessions and simulations.
Participants will appreciate the flexibility of choosing the modules they wish to participate in, around their own schedules. This allows completion of the program at a customized pace and provides a broader network for relationship-building opportunities.
The program is residential and off-site to encourage more comprehensive and diverse learning.
Registration fee: $4,120 per module (total of $20,600 [HST exempt]). The fee includes all sessions over the 2¼-day period (a total of 125 hours for all five modules), all program materials, all meals and accommodation during the session, and the proctored exam.
The Directors College also offers specialized programs and courses tailored to the needs of board and committee chairs and members who want to learn how leading corporations apply the latest corporate governance principles, practices and insights.
