The international body was founded in Britain in 1891 and received Royal Charter in 1902. The Institute in Nigeria was established many years ago as an associate of the international body. It was granted autonomy in August, 1988 and was incorporated under the Companies Act 1968. It was granted a Charter by Act No. 19 of 1991 (formerly Decree No. 19 of 1991). The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN) is the leading recognised professional body in Nigeria dedicated to enhancing the status and practice of Corporate Governance and Public Administration. The ICSAN educational and professional structure is dedicated to the task of broadening the professional horizons of tomorrow’s managers by providing programmes on wide range of subjects that lead to a qualification which is nationally and internationally recognised. The professional qualification is the equivalence of business education comparable to a master’s degree level programme. It is a “professional qualification that results from professional education”. No one becomes a member of the Institute without passing the qualifying examinations.
