Through its programmes in general and the MACS in particular, IACA is becoming a key player in the global efforts against corruption. The MACS curriculum reflects well the understanding that corruption needs a multidisciplinary and complex approach. The programme also strongly encourages knowledge exchange not only between the trainer and the students but also between the students themselves. This is particularly valuable because students come from different countries and sectors and I have directly observed how exchanges between them catalyze creative analysis of entrenched problems and they all benefit from exposure to different local settings.

Meeting so many people different in age, geographical origin and culture but all sharing an unstoppable desire not only to learn about fighting corruption but also to do it in practice, is a privilege for every lecturer. This privilege becomes even greater after recognizing that only a few lessons connect these different people into a homogenous front against the evil of corruption.

The MACS course is a rigorous and intensive programme of study. I was particularly impressed by the breadth of material covered and the highly effective use of practical exercises to embed learning. The students are exposed to teaching of the highest calibre and from a broad spectrum of experts. The MACS class of 2018 were an incredibly diverse group of dedicated and skilled professionals from all over the world. They worked incredibly hard during each Module and would return home exhausted but it was clear to see that this programme was already making a difference to their professional lives. They were all excited and expectant about future opportunities once they had conclude the course. It was a delight and an honour to be part of the teaching faculty on this flagship and premier programme of study.

The IACA stories project will offer members of the IACA community the opportunity to record, share, and preserve personal stories relating to their experience with the Academy.

The MACS programme has a solid structure, analysing corruption from all relevant angles. The programme is truly multidisciplinary and offers state of the art insights on fighting corruption through discussions with renowned academics and practitioners. The course has been highly relevant for my career. In my job I benefit a lot from the knowledge and international network I have developed during the MACS programme.

MACS is a program for people who have a passion about leaving a better world and at the same time people who want to make the most out of life, working and studying at the same time. Being in a classroom with 17 different nationalities is a unique experience by itself. The teachers are passionate about the topics and renowned worldwide. If you want to take the fight seriously, this is the place to be.

Open Trainings

Musa Modoi

IACA is a place where theory meets practice and people from different nations exchange cutting edge perspectives and experiences in anti-corruption. The learning environment is amazing. IACA, and particularly the MACS, is a prism of different approaches – a hub where global anti-corruption practice is interrogated and validated, and new approaches unveiled through critical thought and innovation. When it comes to anti-corruption programmes around the world, I know no better than the MACS.
