Every day I appreciate the finer nuances of anti-corruption strategy that I have learnt during the MACS.

The world-class faculty are remarkable and our class has students from all continents and professional backgrounds. IACA and my wonderful classmates have left indelible memories.

IACA’s Master programme in Anti-Corruption is a fabulous course. This course has enabled me to view corruption from perspectives I never imagined existed.
