M.Jur. Business Risk and Intelligence Concentration (available online)

The M.Jur. in Business Risk and Intelligence is a hybrid concentration that partners the Compliance, Business Law and Risk certificate at the School of Law (CCB® accredited) with the Business Intelligence Certificate at the Greehey School of Business.

This concentration has been established to appeal to compliance professionals, governmental and private sector procurement and contracting professionals, accounting professionals, and analysts who want to use data to ask about the “why” not just the “how.”

This concentration has been curated for those already working at the intersection of compliance, business and data analytics looking to advance, pivot or reskill in emerging fields such as fintech, data analytics and procurement.

Consider this certificate if you are…
  • A decision-maker who uses data to aid in the decision-making process
  • A manager involved in producing reports and analyzing multiple data points to assess their relevance in business decision-making
  • A critical thinker who “connects the dots” to make better business decisions
  • An “outside the box” thinker who asks “what if?” questions using data
  • A proactive thinker who asks, “what else can we do with this data?”
“Business Intelligence models have been used and proven effective in risk management and compliance for quite a while. This program provides students with curriculum and business intelligence tools in such a way as to give students insights that will help them identify risk and integrate compliance and assurance into a performance management system. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of regulatory requirements, risk mediation and proactive corporate governance.”
– Ajaya Swain
