New Online Graduate Certificate of Professional Studies in Risk, Compliance and the Law

The Center for the Study of Business Ethics, Regulation, & Crime (C-BERC) at the University of Maryland is pleased to announce a new Graduate Certificate, a 12-credit online program that provides training and knowledge in the interdisciplinary fields of business law, ethics, criminology, and accounting. C-BERC is a joint effort between the Robert H. Smith School of Business and the College of Behavioral and Social Science.

The Certificate in Risk, Compliance, and the Law (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.

The online learning environment benefits working professionals with flexibility, convenience, and accessibility. GC-Risk can be completed in as little as 12 months while minimally disrupting personal and professional life. Registration now open. For application information, go to
