Máster en Global Compliance & Business Ethics

executive MBA

Program Description

The international financial crisis has revealed the existence of deficiencies in the regulations and control and supervision systems of many companies that have affected the resilience of important sectors of activity in an unfavourable economic environment, causing risks to the stability of the world economic system. To answer this phenomenon, the international financial institutions have deployed a wide range of regulations affecting the mechanisms of compliance, their practical forms of application and their importance when relieving companies of any possible criminal liability.

The advance in new areas of business innovation such as the start-ups or finTechs produces great business opportunities in scenarios in which deregulation is often the trend, which in turn represents a risk for stability of the system when adequate control systems cannot be started up.

The Master/Program in Global Compliance & Business Ethics meets an ever-growing demand of professional specialised in this field, and is designed to train compliance officers and experts in business ethics from a global perspective. Its main functions are to identify traits, to analyse the impact of changes in regulations, to determine preventive and corrective measures against corruption and crime, to give training so that managers and employees might know and apply all of the rules that affect their activity, and to carry out prevention plans to help companies be relieved of possible criminal liability. In growingly complex regulatory environments, the compliance officers become the safeguard of the corporate reputation and business ethics of the entity, in addition to that of being the main and direct spokesperson with regulators and supervisors. The management of conflicts-of-interest within the company where they do their work, and the development of routes for whistleblowing also form part of their functions.

Although the students receive a training that covers the main sectors affected (banking, pharmaceutical, insurance, energy, telecommunications, etc.), due to the systemic importance of the program, it particularly stresses the regulatory compliance of financial entities. The aim is to train effective professionals capable of developing a true culture of compliance in the companies where they give their services, compliance translating into the preparation, implementation and supervision of the performance of solid programs of regulatory compliance to combat phenomena such as transnational money laundering and financing of terrorism or cybercrime, and to strengthen the protection of personal data in the digital environment or avoid the abuse and manipulation of markets. The professionals of this branch are therefore called to perform a capital function in companies leading the market at the beginning of this century.
