Later, the students take part in the Compliance Lab, and finally, they will deliberate about the future of anti-corruption compliance and initiatives.

The MACS students focus on national anti-corruption strategies and plans, corruption investigation and prosecution, asset tracing and recovery, and asset management.

Students of both programmes will also attend an interesting discussion with experts on investigation and evaluation in the UN systems from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
