The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN) is a leading recognized professional body in Nigeria dedicated to enhancing the status and practice of Corporate Governance and Public Administration. ICSAN is the only professional body authorized in Nigeria to conduct the examinations leading to the qualification of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.
The Institute is a member of the Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA), a Hong Kong-registered global organization, dedicated to developing and growing the study and practice of Secretaryship to improve professional standards, the quality of governance practice and to improve organizational performance. The Association is the global voice of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals.
As work practices and employers’ requirements change, the Institute’s Post-Qualifying Education (PQE) helps Chartered Secretaries adapt by updating their knowledge and skills throughout their career. This is achieved through a range of programmes e.g. conferences, workshops, public lecture, roundtable on corporate governance and Mandatory Continuing Professional Education (MCPE)
WHY ICSAN IS DIFFERENT
Our Qualifying Scheme is unique. No other professional body provides a post graduate qualification that is as broad based as the ICSAN’s. Chartered Secretaries and Administrators are trained in business, corporate governance, company law, management, finance, administration, management information system and company secretaryship
