Experienced practising board members and senior leaders with directorship potential
Superior skills for board level engagement and stewardship practices
The role of board director is becoming progressively demanding and diverse. This includes monitoring strategic oversight, scanning emerging potential risks, wider stakeholder and resource building, steering the vision through identifying opportunities for business growth or development. A director’s skills and qualities in handling dilemmas and inconsistencies, while remaining authentic, are vital.
The Henley Certificate in Board Practice and Directorship is a post-experience, practice-focused programme that aims to enhance your value as a board director. Focusing on governance and strategic oversight as a board-level stewardship responsibility, the programme provides you with the knowledge and skills to support effective judgements in board-level decision-making and promote longer-term resilient governance.
Each board and the organisational context it faces is unique. As a result, the Henley Certificate in Board Practice and Directorship considers what it takes to deliver highly effective boards, director behaviours and governance frameworks across different sectors and settings.
The programme is delivered by expert academic faculty, with insights from highly experienced board practitioners. It also draws extensively on the top-team governance research conducted at Henley Business School, which covers more than 19,000 boards across 37 countries.
Upon completion of the programme, you will receive an internationally recognised qualification from a triple-accredited, global business school. In addition, you have the possibility to progress your study further to the Henley MA Board Practice and Directorship.
