M.Jur. Compliance, Business Law and Risk Concentration (available online)
The M.Jur. in Compliance, Business Law and Risk is available both as an online distance learning program and a traditional classroom environment.
The field of compliance law has experienced significant growth and rapid evolution within the past few years.
The St. Mary’s 30-credit-hour M.Jur. concentration provides a comprehensive overview of compliance, which is applicable to a majority of commercial fields and government organizations, especially in light of the regulatory changes prompted by the 2008 global financial crisis.
Program components are curated to offer the most efficient delivery of substantive compliance curriculum and procedural fundamentals. This concentration will familiarize students with those concepts required to obtain certification through the Compliance Certification Board (CCB)®.
Eligibility for the CCB certification exams normally requires CEUs and work experience in the field of compliance. However, students who have successfully completed a CCB accredited masters or certificate program from a participating university are considered to have fulfilled these two requirements and can sit for CCB certification exams by earning a B or higher in each required course. Graduates have up to 12 months to take the CCB certification exams as per CCB External Accreditation guidelines.
