Great demand for Company Secretary

The Company Secretary assists various departments such as accounts, finance, legal, human resource and administration, and advises directors on statutory requirements of the company.
A CS maintains company records, arranges meetings, plans and manages taxes, assesses loans and investment options and explores expansion, merger, joint ventures and acquisition opportunities.
He is the link between directors and shareholders. Company Secretaries can succeed only if they keep updating themselves with the latest information in the corporate sector especially related to law. Besides thorough knowledge of relevant subjects, command over language is another skill they need to have.
Loyalty and integrity are two personal traits that are essential for these professionals as they will be working with the top management of the company and will have knowledge of critical information.
ICSI registers students with 10+2 and graduate qualifications for the foundation course. There are three stages in pursuing a CS course, namely foundation, executive and professional programme.
