The Directors Education Program was jointly developed by the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) and the Rotman School of Management to help board directors clarify their governance mission and fully exercise their leadership potential as a board member.
Delivered by Canada’s leading corporate governance experts, it is a highly interactive 12-day course that incorporates roundtable discussions, real-time case studies and on-point insights from world-renowned faculty, experts in the field of board behaviours and executives in residence.
The goal of the program is to build competencies deemed necessary to be an effective director.
Completion of the DEP is the first step towards obtaining the professional ICD.D designation granted by the Institute of Corporate Directors. This is the only professional designation for Canadian directors recognized both nationally and internationally.
