ICS Learn Launches 100% Online Corporate Governance Institute Certificates

We’re thrilled to announce the expansion of our corporate governance courses, with the launch of two new bite-sized certificates from the Corporate Governance Institute!

What is Corporate Governance?

Corporate governance is an integral part of businesses around the world. Referring to a system of practices and rules created to establish appropriate decision-making processes and controls, corporate governance helps to safeguard organisations and stakeholders. 

At a senior level, corporate governance encompasses the way an organisation’s objectives are decided and set, in reference to their social, environmental and regulatory context. 

At its heart, corporate governance is set in place to monitor the practices and processes that will enable an organisation to run smoothly and reach its set objectives, while at the same time ensuring that stakeholders' faith and trust in the company are well justified.

Is a Corporate Governance qualification right for you?

Widely known as the leading professional body for the development of corporate governance knowledge and skills, the Corporate Governance Institute’s qualifications are recognised and sought after by employers worldwide, helping senior professionals to excel in their careers.

For the directors of today, and of tomorrow, the development of corporate governance skills is paramount due to increased scrutiny organisational boards face, in regards to how far their organisation’s practices uphold ethical standards. 

For this reason, qualifications from the Corporate Governance Institute are considered the ideal path for aspiring and current directors and C-suite leaders to equip themselves with essential governance skills and knowledge required to improve organisations. 

The Corporate Governance Institute offers a range of qualifications which aim to uphold high standards of corporate governance across a wide range of industries and business sectors. Such qualifications include the Diploma in Corporate Governance, designed to provide correct or aspiring directors an understanding of the best corporate governance practice and how to effectively engage board structures. Additionally, the Diploma in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) focuses on why ESG is essential to your organisation and how to equip directors with the right tools to apply the ESG framework to their organisation.
