MACS BrochureThe second cycle of the Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS) is starting this October. Do not miss out on the opportunity to profit from this unique and career supporting experience. The closing date for applications is 30 April.

The MACS has been developed for a compact group of international participants against an interdisciplinary background of theoretical and practical approaches, drawing on the best of the public sector and the business world. It aims to encourage professionals to join the fight against corruption and adopt compliance and integrity stances in future leadership roles.

As a part-time programme for working professionals, the MACS combines seven, intensive ten-day modules across two years. The modules examine corruption from the perspectives of economics, business, politics, and law, focusing on both enforcement and prevention.

Susan Rose-Ackerman (Yale University), Nikos Passas (Northeastern University), and Mark Pieth (Basel University) lead the programme as a consortium. Each module features leading experts in the field, carefully selected to enrich the perspectives of the students. For the first cycle of the MACS, currently underway, they have included, among others, Mushtaq Khan (School of African and Oriental Studies, University of London), Johann Graf Lambsdorff (University of Passau), Tina Søreide (University of Bergen), Andrew Spalding (University of Richmond School of Law), Edward Spence (Charles Sturt University), and Ramakrishna Velamuri (Europe China Business School).

Potential candidates must hold a Bachelor or an equivalent degree and have a good command of the English language. A minimum of three years of relevant work experience or a proven record of academic research in the area of anti-corruption and/or compliance is also required. Business executives, compliance officers, public officials, media representatives, academics, and civil society advocates from around the world are encouraged to apply.

The MACS programme is accredited with 120 ECTS points under the European Bologna system.
