Corporate Governance
Orientation Program

ICD is a Civil Service Commission (CSC) Accredited Learning and Development Institution.

ICD's Corporate Governance Orientation Program (CGOP) aims to provide participants

with fundamental and essential appreciation of the benefits and impact of modern corporate governance best practices. The subject matter is framed within the context of local reforms

and how these relate and respond to regional and global trends.


Regulatory updates, corporate governance best practices in the setting of emerging risks

and trends, and the duties and responsibilities of the board committees—including risk oversight, audit, and corporate governance—are examined during the full-day session.
