INSEAD Certification for Directors

In today’s volatile business environment, organisations need board members with the expertise to guide them towards sustainable value creation. As a leading educational player on the global business stage, INSEAD is uniquely positioned to help directors hone their skills and enable more effective corporate governance in an increasingly fast-changing world. That’s why we offer two types of certification for directors – the Certificate in Corporate Governance and the Advanced Certificate in Corporate Governance. These two certificates complement each other: participants who obtain our Certificate in Corporate Governance can then attend a selection of INSEAD Open Enrolment Programmes to obtain the Advanced Certificate in Corporate Governance.
