New training in Vancouver for corporate Board Directors


The Sauder School of Business and SFU Business, in partnership with the ICD Corporate Governance College (College) and the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management are introducing BC’s first comprehensive Directors Education Program (DEP) to help corporate Directors continue to meet and exceed good corporate governance practices.

Originally developed and delivered in Toronto, the DEP teaches current and aspiring Directors appropriate skills for dealing with the issues they encounter in and out of the boardroom. Directors will learn about current regulations and best practices related to board strategy, function and composition; financial reporting and auditing; monitoring, assessing and evaluating compensation issues; and bankruptcies, mergers and acquisitions.

The DEP comprises four, three-day modules between April and November 2005 and is taught by faculty from the Sauder School of Business, SFU Business, and the Rotman School of Management, as well as by governance experts and Fellows of the Institute of Corporate Directors. The modules reflect current, real-world issues and include break-out sessions, board simulations with guest CEOs and current directors of public companies, and case studies..

Successfully completing the DEP is a key prerequisite for obtaining certification from the Institute of Corporate Directors as an “ICD.D”
