The new syllabus was proposed by the prestigious “Institute of Company Secretary of India” ICSI under the presidency of Shri. CS (Dr.) Shyam Agarwal.

Vision of ICSI behind the new syllabus

It is a well-accepted fact that in today’s competitive environment,a good syllabus implies a bright career. And in the light of this fact, ICSI made efforts in revising the course curriculum of CS Executive and CS Professional Programme under the Company Secretary Course.

ICSI is known to be one of most prolific institutes for professional studies that focuses largely on the continuous development of the course structure. With this new syllabus, ICSI wanted to transform the course structure into something that bridges the gulf in between the theory and the practice sections in the right manner that can play a major role in the upliftment of the career of its students.

Core, Ancillary and Hybrid

In order to enhance the perspective of the company secretary course, under the new syllabus, ICSI adopted an innovative concept of  Core, Ancillary and Hybrid while designing and developing the structures and contents of the new syllabus for CS Executive and CS Professional Programme.

Expectation after New-syllabus

The new syllabus is expected to provide the cs students a wider perspective and a more practical overview of what they are required to perform when they get graduated with the CS Degree. Under the ICSI new syllabus, certain extremely relevant Post Membership Qualification and Certification Courses are also launched by the ICSI that will act as a value addition qualification of a Company Secretary.
