Summer Academy 2017

IACA Summer Academy 2017 fulfilled my expectations! It was well-organized, and the academic sessions were exceptionally good. It has changed my views about corruption, opened my eyes, and showed the ways to fight it. The Academy has not only enhanced our knowledge but also helped to build a strong network among participants, anti-corruption fighters from all over the world. In short, it was an excellent programme!

Summer Academy 2017

The 2016 Summer Academy was special for me, because I had the great opportunity to make new friends and learn from their experience. The lectures were in a stimulating environment and the IACA staff were very helpful. For sure, this was a great experience which I will carry on using in my daily activities. Thank you IACA for the enthusiasm and for doing it every year!

Summer Academy 2017

Initially, I doubted my ability to match the other candidates, but I am now driven to seek a career in compliance. You (IACA) provided me with the tools, motivation, and learning platform to see that my goal of becoming a certified compliance professional was definitely achievable.
