Compliance is a growing field that is global in scope.
Fordham is at the vanguard of this evolving and expanding field—and our master's degree in compliance will put you there, too.
Whether you’re already working in compliance or want to forge an exciting new career path, the program will help you develop a sophisticated understanding of compliance—in New York City, a world capital of business and finance.
This flexible master’s degree can accelerate your career.
You can choose between full-time study to complete the degree in one year (two semesters) or enroll on a part-time basis. Either way, you’ll gain the skills needed to effectively design, implement, monitor, and evaluate corporate compliance programs. You’ll learn about core topics such as international financial crime, legislation and regulation, and risk assessment.
As a capstone to your degree, you’ll have the option to write a 10,000-word thesis or to complete a team project designing an end-to-end compliance program.
You’ll also have opportunities to network with leading compliance professionals through events and programs available through Fordham Law School and its Corporate Law Center, as well as Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business.
Anyone who has earned an undergraduate degree from an accredited university may apply. Individuals who have earned a JD, LLB, or other law degree are not eligible for MSL admission. Instead, they should apply for admission to the LLM in Corporate Compliance.
Both options are available. The full-time program can be completed in one year (two semesters). Students enrolled in the part-time program may complete the program in as few three semesters or extend their studies to fit their busy schedules.
