A flexible master’s degree to accelerate your career
Corporate compliance is a growing area that is global in scope. Fordham Law is at the vanguard of this evolving and expanding field—and the new MSL in Corporate Compliance will put you there, too.
Whether you’re already working in compliance or want to forge an exciting new career path, the program will help you develop a sophisticated understanding of corporate compliance—in New York City, a world capital of business and finance.
You’ll gain the skills needed to effectively design, implement, monitor, and evaluate corporate compliance programs. You’ll learn about core topics such as international financial crime, legislation and regulation, and risk assessment. As a capstone to your degree, you’ll have the option to write a 10,000-word thesis or to complete a team project designing an end-to-end compliance program.
You’ll also have opportunities to network with leading corporate compliance professionals through events and programs available through Fordham Law and its Corporate Law Center, as well as Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business.
