Our Gold Standard Programs

They say strong leadership can’t be taught.
At The Directors College, we beg to differ.

The Directors College goes beyond theory to prepare you for the real world. Our directors education programs arm you with the knowledge and insight you need to be an effective board member, and provide you with the credibility that will inspire confidence and leadership.

The Directors College delivers a unique experience that recognizes both sides of directorship—the “technical and structural” (rules-based) side and the “cultural” (principle-based and behavioural) side. This raises the bar for professional standards and the dynamic relationship between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. We recognize the importance of having prepared and insightful directors who have the courage to ask important questions and the ability to collaborate in the boardroom.

At The Directors College, you don’t just learn it … you live it. Our comprehensive programs not only arm you with the knowledge and insight you need, but also provide you with The Directors College Gold Standard of credibility—university accreditation that will inspire the confidence of those who entrust a position to your leadership.

Image of an opening quotation markA strong board needs a combination of industry knowledge and sound judgement. You need people able to challenge one another, but in a productive environment. The Directors College provides skills, perspectives and tactics to drive value as an effective and successful board member. As a graduate of the Chartered Director Program, I found The Directors College an excellent survey of the critical issues and developing trends of today’s corporate environment. I highly recommend The Directors College.”
