What to Expect
Over the last several decades, the sheer volume of laws, regulations, standards and guidelines that govern businesses has increased dramatically. When a business fails to comply, it can open itself up to lawsuits and serious financial and criminal liability. This is where you’ll come in as a compliance and risk management officer.
The expertise you build in our master’s program will open up new career opportunities, especially if you choose to pursue one of our two specialized tracks: healthcare or business finance.
In our healthcare track, you can prepare for work at hospitals, pharmaceutical or device manufacturers, or eldercare businesses, or opt for a career in government at agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration, Federal Trade Commission or Department of Justice.
Or, if you choose our business finance specialization, you’ll have opportunities for careers at law firms, banks, investment management firms and other financial firms, as well as government agencies such as the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Financial Protection Bureau and others.
You can complete your master’s in as little as one year if studying full time and two years if studying part time.
