About the Yemeni Institute of Directors (YIoD)
The Yemeni Institute of Directors – YIoD is a unique experience applied for the first time in Yemen through the Yemeni Business Club – YBC, the leading Yemeni organization in supporting and advocating for private sector issues and the International Finance Organization (IFC) one of the World Bank Group entities. The institute targets the boards of directors members and senior managers due to the vital role that boards of directors play in the growth, stability and development of business enterprises. The Institute provides high-quality services through its cooperation with many official bodies such as the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Central Bank and others. IFC is YIoD’s strategic partner that designed many training programs for the Institute as well as providing highly qualified trainers and practical experiences in the same field, so the quality of the programs offered by the institute is similar to the best programs offered in similar institutes regionally and internationally.
