FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pace University and the Association of International Bank Auditors to offer expanded Certified Compliance and Regulatory Professional program
New York, Nov. 26 — The Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University and the Association of International Bank Auditors announce an expanded Certified Compliance and Regulatory Professional (CCRP™) certificate program starting February 28, 2013.
This six-month program with 20 three-hour sessions adds two new modules on securities law and consumer protection law. The certification is designed for regulatory compliance professionals, auditors, attorneys, consultants, regulators, risk managers, hedge fund managers, and broker-dealers.
“Pace’s collaborative program with AIBA is unique in that it is organized in a graduate school of management teaching structure and supported by an international association of internal audit, compliance and internal control professionals,” said John Alan James, executive director of the center at Pace’s Lubin School of Business and program director of CCRP™. “Other certifications simply do not offer enough depth or intensity in their programs to allow the student to gain sufficient knowledge to make an impact in the workforce.”
Financial institutions are facing an increased regulatory burden both in the United States and abroad. Furthermore, the pace of regulatory changes is increasing dramatically. Ongoing retraining in this ever changing environment is critical and must be professionally administered.
The CCRP™ at Pace provides growth opportunities and positions global financial services professionals as leaders in the compliance community, giving them an edge in a very competitive job market. The program has been designed with the rigorous content demanded by an academic agenda while stressing the important practical dimensions of real world experience in the compliance field. Professors from Pace University, all with distinguished prior careers in the private sector, created the syllabus alongside veteran compliance professionals from some of the world’s leading international banks.
Guest speakers drawn from prestigious New York law firms, the Big Four Accounting firms, and the bank regulatory community will complement the joint Pace-AIBA team.
Classes will be held on Thursday evenings beginning February 28, 2013 through June 27, 2013, at Pace University’s Midtown Center in the historic Fred French Building.
