KARACHI: Pakistan Institute of Corporate Governance (PICG), the country’s premier executive education institute, has once again taken the lead by raising the bar for corporate governance education in Pakistan.

PICG has now joined hands with the Institute of Directors (IoD) UK, the most exclusive organization dealing with board excellence, to introduce the globally recognized Accelerated Certificate in Company Direction under Royal Charter in Pakistan.

The Accelerated Certificate presents an opportunity to become part of an exclusive global network of 463 International Certificate and Diploma holders across 34 countries and more than 2000 Certificate holders in the UK.

The programme is designed as an intensive, advanced course for an internationally recognized qualification. The programme’s setting within an international context makes it a unique educational experience not only for senior executives and professionals preparing themselves for a board mandate, but also for current directors, from organizations of all sizes and sectors including family businesses, who want to bring specific competences and credibility to the boards on which they serve.

This programme applies a combination of online and face to face learning. On successful completion of the Certificate, examination candidates are issued a Certificate in Company Direction by the IoD UK and are entitled to use the designatory letters ‘Cert IoD’ after their name.

As a long-established professional awarding body, the IoD is the only Institute in the world to offer qualifications for directors under the Royal Charter, both in the UK and overseas. As a result of its long history, extensive research, business experience and expertise, IoD has built up substantial reputation and goodwill in the Certificate of Company Direction Programme, which is associated with the highest standards of experience and professionalism. PICG has greatly benefited from the IoD’s business training knowledge, experience, skills, material resource and on-line access required to conduct the programme in Pakistan.

Over the years, PICG has continuously strived to make its delegates the primary beneficiaries of training programmes in terms of their professional advancement; delivered by PICG’s highly respected and experienced faculty, the programme offers Pakistani delegates an opportunity to obtain the Certificate qualification at a preferential rate.
