Directors Academy

Directors Academy

Directors Academy is the premier certificate program offering corporate governance for new board members.

Fall 2023 Program Overview

Directors Academy’s boardroom setting provides a small and targeted environment to foster interactive dialogue between participants and leading executives, corporate directors and policymakers. Directors Academy provides participants an understanding of the increasingly complex and ever-changing role of a corporate board member prepared to contribute to discussions occurring in the boardroom.

Upon completion of two Directors Academy programs within a two-year period, graduates are awarded a Certificate in Director Education. In its sixth year with over 40 graduates, Directors Academy’s robust alumni program emphasizes the importance of continued director education and supports graduates’ journeys to the boardroom. Alumni receive special access to resources such as current thought leadership, future Directors Academy program resources and priority invitations to key Gupta Governance Institute programs. The Institute also hosts alumni board biographies on its website, which serves as a resource for Nominating and Governance Committees and executive search firms who are seeking new board candidates.
