SID-SMU Directorship Programmes

Course Description The SID-SMU Directorship Programme (SDP) was launched in 2007, the first local director training programme with formal certification.  

The partnership brings together Singapore Management University’s academic excellence and strength in delivering executive programmes with SID’s strong network of business leaders in the corporate sector.

Set within an Asian context, this unique six-module programme provides a 360-degree board-level view of the key strategic areas and issues faced by company directors. It aims to enhance participants’ board level skills and update their knowledge and ability to lead in challenging times.

The highly practical and action-based sessions thrive on relevant case studies, role-plays and simulations as adjunct to theories.

The programme is organised in two tiers. Participants can obtain an Executive Diploma in Directorship by completing all six assessable modules successfully.  Alternatively, participants can obtain an Executive Certificate in Directorship by completing the first three modules successfully. Graduates from the Programme may be admitted to SMU’s Executive Development Alumni Association.

The modules can be taken non-sequentially, providing scheduling flexibility.
