The European Board Diploma

A unique programme designed for European board members by senior European board members.
The ecoDa programme is designed as an add-on to the national education programmes.

Why this programme ?

At a time when boards’ duties are increasing and corporate governance challenges ever evolving, ecoDa has designed its European Board Diploma as a tool to stimulate collective intelligence and equip board members with the necessary knowledge and behavior to succeed in their roles.

This programme conceived as an eye-opener and a peer learning experience supplemented by real case studies constitutes a source of inspiration and a roadmap to strive for excellence.
