Welcome Note

The Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs established by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, is a think tank. As an institute we try to anticipate and meet needs of learners in a way no one else does. Our values are based on what we bring to our classes by combining theory and practice through a unique learning model called the IICA way of learning. This is our brand and is something we are constantly building, because it is an affirmation of who we are. The unique way of learning unlocks the growth potential residing in every learner. The IICA way of learning compels us to be agile, engage in constant exploration and prevents us from being complacent. Through this way of learning we handcraft the next phase of the career growth of participants.

Presently to make Inida a business friendly, investment friendly and start-up friendly jurisdiction the government by bringing in various new acts and through amendments of existing laws has brought in the concept and practice of conflict resolution through the art and skill of mediation. The arrival of Mediation in conflict resolution scene is evident from the recent introduction of mediation in almost all commercial dispute resolution laws such as Section 12A of Commercial Courts Act, 2015, Section 442 of Companies Act, 2013, Chapter V of Consumer Protection Act, 1986. As a government think tank we are pleased to roll out a 40 – Hour mediation training for capacity building and creation of professionals to cater to commercial disputes to be resolved through negotiation and mediation.

- Dr. Sameer Sharma, Director General and CEO, IICA

India has an existing demand and need of professionally trained mediators. Mediation as a concept can be understood only through the process of 40 hour professional training. The training is designed keeping in mind the necessity of theoretical learning and practical implementation to be done by trained professionals post being trained. Mediation is an art as well as skill better learnt through training and experience.

- Dr. Naveen J Sirohi, Programme Director
