DSC 1002.jpg webIACA is offering up to three alumni an exciting opportunity to get a first-hand insight into its master programmes by taking an Open Module of the Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS).

Module 5 of the MACS 2016 programme focuses on Corruption, Compliance and the Private Sector. The courses include:

  • Corruption in the Corporate Sector and Good Corporate Governance (Prof. Ramakrishna Velamuri, China Europe International Business School, Shanghai, China)
  • Economics of Corporate Criminal Liability for Corruption Offences and Settlement Processes (Prof. Tina Soreide, Norwegian School of Economics)
  • Compliance and Internal Investigations (the lecturer, a high-level practitioner, will be announced shortly).

The module starts on 11 September 2017 with a pre-module (distance learning) phase and ends on 3 December 2017. Classes will take place from 16 to 27 October at IACA’s campus in Laxenburg. Our annual International Dinner and other social events will complement the academic programme.

Alumni participants, like the regular MACS students, will have to satisfy all academic requirements of the module, including pre- and post-module written assignments and attending all classes. The module carries 14 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits.

The Open Module fee is based on the overall MACS programme fee and amounts to 3,562.50 EUR. The fee paid by alumni participants can subsequently count towards the overall fee for the MACS or IACA’s International Master in Anti-Corruption Compliance and Collective Action (IMACC) should they be accepted to one of these programmes in the future. Please kindly note that no scholarships are available for the Open Module.

Applications for the Open Module are welcome from candidates who satisfy the following requirements:

  • An undergraduate degree, equivalent to a bachelor’s degree
  • A minimum of three years of relevant work experience in areas related to anti-corruption and compliance, including law, governance, business and management, audit, journalism, academia, development, international organizations, etc.
  • Proficiency in written and spoken English.

Acceptance decisions will be based on the candidates’ professional and academic background and their interest in the programme.

The deadline for applications is 15 August 2017. To apply, send your resume/CV, a brief note outlining your interest in taking an Open Module, and copies of your university diplomas and transcripts to macs@iaca.int.
