The International Anti-Corruption Academy, Part II

We learned in the last post about the creation of IACA, the International Anti-Corruption Academy. It's a teaching and training institution that is helping to build a new generation of worldwide anti-corruption professionals.

IACA's flagship program is the Masters in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS). It's a two-year, part-time program for professionals who wish to remain employed while pursuing an advanced degree. The program attracts business executives, public officials, media representatives, academics, and civil society advocates from around the world. 

It involves seven intensive 10-day modules, taking place in three-month intervals across two years. The modules will study corruption from the perspectives of economics, business, politics, and law, focusing on both enforcement and prevention. 

The next program will begin in October 2014, with applications due this March. For a video about MACS, see here.

The IACA has a number of other opportunities as well, which we will discuss in the next post.
