IACA is proud to offer the first global, postgraduate programme in anti-corruption - the Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS).

The structure of the programme is compact in order to accommodate working professionals who wish to continue pursuing their careers while participating. For this reason, the MACS runs over the course of two years, combining distance learning with seven on-site modules.

The MACS allows participants to build on their competences and become better acquainted with the intertwined manner in which corruption manifests itself, and the social complexities surrounding it. Participants are provided with the necessary skills and tools to better understand and contribute to the fight against corruption and take preventative measures in their own environments.

In the programme’s participatory environment, participants have the opportunity to develop a strong network of professionals, which will assist them both during and after their studies.

The MACS Academic Consortium includes Professor Susan-Rose Ackerman, Professor Nikos Passas, and Professor Mark Pieth. For each specific module, visiting professors and executive practitioners who lead in their field are brought in.

The first edition of the MACS ran from December 2012 - December 2014, while the second cycle of the programme started in October 2014.

Applications for MACS 2015 - 2017 will open in March 2015.
