The Banking, Finance and Compliance Program at Lauder Business School combines contemporary knowledge and concepts in the field of international banking and finance with the relevant topics of law and policy as well as the tools and techniques of compliance management. The drastic changes to the regulative frameworks within which international organizations operate (Basel III, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Corporate Governance codes, valuation and accounting regulations, etc.) mean that contemporary business professionals need a new and very special profile.
Professionals in the finance sectors must become critical thinkers, dealmakers and investors as well as understand management in leading financial institutions and companies. Students will acquire expert knowledge in the fields of banking and finance and in managing institutions within this industry, in consulting and in auditing organizations in terms of compliance with a complex framework of regulations.
The LBS combines American and European educational methods and is connected to the Harvard MOC (Microeconomics of Competitiveness) Network, which includes more than 100 major business schools from 65 different countries.
