SID-SMU Directorship Programmes

Course Description The SID-SMU Directorship Programme (SDP) was launched in 2007. It is a director training programme with a formal certification process.

The partnership brings together the Singapore Management University’s academic excellence and strength in delivering executive programmes, as well as SID’s strong network of senior business executives in the corporate sector.

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 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.

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