Corporate Governance Certificate Programme 2017
Background and purpose of the programme
Africa is regarded worldwide as being a leader in the field of Corporate
Governance and the various King Reports released over the years attracted
worldwide attention. The King IV report released in November 2016 have further
simplified and strengthened this practice. King IV is considered one of the
most relevant and progressive corporate governance reports in the world.
joined forces with the Institute of Directors Southern Africa to present a
certificate programme in corporate governance that will assist organizations as
well as public enterprises to come to terms with the principles and practises
of sound corporate governance.
multidisciplinary approach is followed to cover all the important aspects of
the King Report. Sound academic perspectives are combined with practical
experience of corporate governance. Assessment takes place in the form of case
studies and a written assessment where participants have to demonstrate both
their knowledge and practical skills in corporate governance.
The course consists of two blocks of lectures, a written assessment and case study assignments. A certificate will be awarded to participants who attend all the lectures and successfully complete the assessment and assignments with a final mark of 50% and above.
