ICD-Rotman Directors Education Program

Now more than ever, organizations are depending on strong leadership from their Directors.

Taking the ICD-Rotman Directors Education Program (DEP) is the first step in acquiring your ICD.D designation and with it, the advanced learning that will further equip you to meet the demands facing today’s boards.

Now is the time to apply.

With the health and safety of our participants, faculty and staff remaining the ICD’s top priority, all DEP modules will be delivered digitally through the remainder of 2020. Working closely with Canada’s top business schools, our faculty of leading governance experts will continue to deliver the dynamic curriculum and experiential learning that has made the DEP Canada’s leading program for Directors.

As participants of the DEP also benefit from learning from their Director peers, you can anticipate a hybrid delivery format, dependent on jurisdictional guidelines pertaining to COVID-19. Going forward, modules will be delivered digitally until health officials indicate it is safe to return to the classroom. While the traditional format is three days in-class, over four modules, participants can expect that any digital module will be conducted through up to six half-days.
