MAP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. What is MAP?
    The Mandatory Accreditation Programme (MAP) is created to formally onboard first-time directors of companies listed on Bursa Malaysia and directors of companies seeking listing on the Exchange. The programme consists of globally-benchmarked competency development modules that are designed to equip you with critical director knowledge and skills required to lead effectively in a highly transparent, accountable and exemplary manner.The programme has been thoughtfully designed to help directors understand the essential principles of good corporate governance, their fiduciary duties, as well as develop proficiency in emerging areas such as sustainability, stakeholder capitalism, and reputation and crisis management. Amongst the key elements of the MAP modules is the sharing of practical experiences and best practices from a local and regional context by our highly experienced programme facilitators.
  1. Is it compulsory for a first time director to a public listed company to attend MAP programme?
    Under the Bursa Malaysia Listing Requirements, directors appointed to the boards of public listed companies for the first time must complete this programme within 4 months of being appointed. In the case of a newly listed company, its directors must complete the programme within 4 months from the date of listing.
  1. Who can attend this programme?
    The MAP is also open to directors of non-listed subsidiaries of public listed companies.
