New Education Network Lets Members Earn Certification Credits at Universities

Building bridges creates long-term reliance

When the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) created its certification program last year, they wanted it to include the best resources and information for members seeking the designation. To help facilitate this, the organization recently launched the NACD Education Network, which allows individuals to earn credits toward their certification through participation in top-tier university courses.

“They’re some of the leading universities in the county, and they’ve been very active in director education,” said NACD CEO Peter Gleason. “Our mission was to make sure we really looked at where [people] were going in addition to NACD.”

Some of those places that members turn to for education are the three universities initially included in the NACD Education Network: Stanford University Rock Center for Corporate Governance Directors’ College, Columbia Business School Executive Education’s Corporate Governance Program and Drexel’s Gupta Governance Institute’s Directors Dialogue.
