Summer Compliance Training at Fordham Law

July 7-11, 2014 | New York City

The job market for trained corporate compliance professionals is expanding both in the United States and around the world.  Recent efforts by regulators in various industries have heightened the importance of corporate compliance initiatives because an effective compliance program may reduce a company’s risks, reduce the severity of claims and penalties when violations do occur, and enhance corporate performance and profitability.

The Program

The Corporate Compliance Institute (CCI) at Fordham University offers a one-week intensive training program on the fundamentals of Corporate Compliance and the role of a compliance officer, with particular emphasis on the financial services sector. Class sessions will include lectures and case studies run by Fordham professors and industry experts. Each day will feature a luncheon with a keynote lecture delivered by a prominent compliance professional. This program is geared toward junior compliance professionals and audit and risk management professionals looking to enhance their skills and knowledge, and others with law or business experience seeking to enter the compliance field. Participants may be from the US or abroad.

Topics will include the following:

• Setting the Compliance Stage
• The State of Compliance Today
• Alignment of Governance Risks and Compliance
• Developing an Effective Compliance Program
• Financial Crime: Bribery, Corruption, Sanctions, and Foreign Asset Control
• Emerging Issues in Securities and Regulatory Compliance
• Spotlight on Hedge Fund Compliance
