New Graduate Certificate Program in Risk, Compliance, and the Law

The Graduate Certificate of Professional Studies in Risk, Compliance, and the Law (GC-Risk) is a 12-credit online program that provides training and knowledge in the interdisciplinary fields of business law, ethics, criminology, and accounting. GC-Risk focuses on forensic audit investigations, software utilization as applied to discerning potentially fraudulent activity, and a detailed understanding of businesses’ legal obligations and the origin and consequences of non-compliance. Graduates will be able to understand and effectively implement the latest developments in empirically supported compliance strategies, investigation and audit practices (including the use of sophisticated software packages and statistical analysis to identify reporting and data aberrations). They will also learn about corporate ethical and legal obligations, both domestically and internationally; strategies to meet and maintain compliance; how to conduct investigations and attorney-client privilege.
