Short Program

From compliance to integrity

Our Short Program

From a compliance point of view, organizations need to move from a purely legalistic approach to a more enlightened one based on knowledge from ethics, sociology and psychology. To do this, the entire corporate culture, from the code of conduct to the training, must be reviewed and compliance professionals must adapt themselves.

This short program is a module of our Certificate in Ethics & Compliance (CAS)

Most organizations manage compliance with a purely legalistic mindset. Unfortunately, and because of this approach, such organizations are not well positioned to manage human risks. To overcome that, this short program will focus its attention on translating psychology, ethics and sociology knowledge into effective compliance programs.


Based on these understandings, participants will be able to write a convincing code of conduct and build trainings with high impact through virtualization and gamification. Building on that, participants will also be confronted with two real world examples of corporations using an enlightened compliance approach.


Last but not least, strategies for involving the board and management teams will be discussed and, with their coaches, participants develop their own implementation strategy for their organizations.

Learning Objectives

  1. Create effective compliance training tailored to your organizations, employees, culture and strategy.
  2. Imagine and write a convincing code of conduct based on the culture and values of your organization.
  3. Design compliance management systems which limit human risks and promote ethical conduct with all stakeholders.

Target Audience

  1. Compliance professionals who see the limits of the legal approach to compliance and want to go further.
  2. Risk managers who want to thoughtfully incorporate fraud and conduct risk in the remit of the risk function.
  3. Professionals who do not manage compliance on a daily basis, but are interested in managing organizational risk.
