Regulation, compliance and risk management have quite rightly received intense scrutiny and interest in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
Today, businesses and regulators face growing pressure to address national and international regulatory demands. They are therefore paying unprecedented attention to the quality of the staff in these areas.
The financial services sector consequently has a strong need for professionals who grasp the key challenges in governing and managing the risks faced by financial institutions. This programme addresses this need for qualified and experienced staff. The programme covers a wide range of European, US and international regulatory matters. The regulation and compliance courses within this programme can be combined with both quantitative and non-quantitative courses.
