Governance Structure

Cogna adopts the best corporate governance practices, in line with its commitment to transparency, reliability, and ethics with all stakeholders. We also observe the recommendations of the Brazilian Institute of Corporate Governance (IBGC) and we adhered to the Arbitration Panel to solve eventual corporate conflicts and questioning.

Cogna’s governance structure is composed of the Board of Directors, five Advisory Committees, a Statutory Board of Executive Officers, and a Fiscal Council. Check our structure

Cogna is the first educational holding to be certified by the WOB (Women on Board). This is an independent initiative – supported by UN Women – which aims to recognize, value and publicize the existence of corporate environments with the presence of at least two women on boards of directors or advisory boards.
