Stakeholders Views / Suggestions on ICSI New Syllabus 2023- The Institute undertakes revision of Company Secretary Course syllabus after every five years keeping in view the developments that are taking place in the financial, economic, social, technological, legal and regulatory environment in order to keep the upcoming professional Company Secretaries updated so as to add value to the corporate sector, the industry, the regulators and other stakeholders.
Accordingly, the Existing Syllabus 2017 is to be revised in the light of the following factors:
• Alignment with National Education Policy including introduction of credit system, pedagogy providing for experiential learning and skill based education
• Technology Enabled
• Student Centric: providing flexible course curriculum with more electives.
• Alignment with changing expectations of industry, regulators and other stakeholders
• Give more emphasis to areas which are not subject to technology automation.
The New Syllabus will be made effective from March, 2023 for Executive Programme and September, 2023 for Professional Programme respectively.
To make the new syllabus futuristic and student centric, we solicit your valuable suggestions/opinions /comments on existing syllabus also keeping in view compliance automation and expectations of industry, regulators and students etc.
In this regard, we have developed a Questionnaire broadly focusing on the areas such as increasing or decreasing of Papers / Modules; more emphasis on specific laws catering to the profession of Company Secretaries i.e., Company Law, Securities Laws, Intellectual Property Rights, Tax Laws etc., rather than covering several laws that may be having less or negligible relevance to the profession; inculcating experiential learning; inclusion of industry based project reports; Open Book Examinations (OBE) for more Papers etc.
The questionnaire can be accessed from the link appended below: https://www.icsi.edu/media/webmodules/QUESTIONNAIRE_NS_2023_FEB_1722.pdf
Your valuable responses on the questions covering various crucial facets of New Syllabus 2023 will definitely play a pivotal role in enriching the new syllabus for Executive / Professional Programmes with high quality knowledge and practical dimensions.
