IACA graduates its first Master’s class, and welcomes its second

Martin Kreutner, IACA dean and executive secretary (Image courtesy of the IACA)The UN-sponsored International Anti-Corruption Academy, located in Vienna, Austria, celebrated last week the graduation of its first class of Masters Degree students.  22 professionals — originating in 15 different countries and from such diverse professions as national anti-corruption enforcement, private business, academia, civil society, and international organizations — received their Master’s Degrees in Anti-Corruption Studies.

The two-year program consists of seven modules spread across 24 months, and brings in professors from around the world to study corruption from the diverse perspectives of law, business, political science, and economics.

Graduation from the Master’s Program allows enrollment into PhDs and offers advanced career opportunities in such fields as compliance, internal oversight, law enforcement, investigative journalism, academia, finance, and international affairs. The Master’s Degree is accredited under the European Bologna Process.

This October, IACA welcomed its second class of Master’s candidates. Thirty-two professionals joined from 22 countries and five continents. They include investigators, public relations officers, auditors, humanitarian workers, diplomats, executives, compliance managers, and police superintendents.
