DSC 1292 webStudents from IACA’s 2018-2020 Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS) programme have completed last Friday the in-class phase of their second module, which covered Political Science and Corruption.

They come from 12 countries, including Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bulgaria, India, Malawi, Mexico, Oman, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, and Uganda.

The module ran from 4 to 15 February and was taught by Professors Michael Levi (Cardiff University, UK), and Mushtaq Khan (SOAS, University of London) and by Ms. Elaine Ryan, senior analyst on anti-corruption and human rights. Aside from lectures, students also had the opportunity to visit the Public Prosecutor’s Office for Combating Economic Crimes and Corruption (WKStA) and the Austrian Court of Audit in Vienna.

The MACS is a two-year, in-career programme consisting of seven modules and a master’s thesis and is specifically designed for working professionals. Applications are now open for the next class starting in autumn 2019. Read more about the MACS here.
