Module 5 is an optional, stand alone module.

This Module can be taken on its own, or in addition to the full 4 Module Program.  

Successfully completing all 5 Modules earns the student the further designation of Pro.Dir.Gov - short for Professional Director Government.  This designation will serve you well should you serve on any type of public sector board.

Module Five, entitled Governance and the Public Good, has been designed to situate corporate governance in the larger political context, beginning with session 1 understanding the fiduciary duties and resulting expectations for a board member of a public sector enterprise, and then session 2 understanding the role of a public sector director and any particular nuances and implications for being on the board of a public sector entity.

Session 3 covers “The Structure and Process of Public Sector Governance” moving then to session 4 on "Decision-Making in the Context of the Public Sector Board" which is about how to make better decisions in the public sector context given cultural and cognitive biases. 

Finally, session 5 focuses specifically on chairing the board of a public sector enterprise and the particular nuances of that role.
