Short Program

Human compliance in action

Our Short Program

The application of the rules is often much more complicated than their definition. In a world filled with gray areas, risk and compliance managers need to know how to handle difficult and real compliance situations while zooming into new aspects of compliance and risk management to prepare their organization for the future.

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

In this short program, compliance managers will receive communication and practical tools to help them manage difficult compliance situations. With this preparation, they will be able to help their own managers and colleagues to also master such situations and answer complex questions such as:


– How can a sales manager say no to a customer who asks for a bribe?
– How does a compliance officer effectively interview an employee in an investigation?


In addition, new and emerging topics will also be addressed. Indeed, new risks (or solutions) of compliance related to the human factor have emerged in recent years and require careful analysis. Three of these topics will be explored in this short program:


– Organization of multi-stakeholder solutions for compliance risks;
– Management of human rights risks in the supply chain;
– Management of new compliance risks resulting from the digitization of the organization.

Learning Objectives

  1. Select effective communication strategies adapted to the different difficult compliance situations encountered.
  2. Identify new and potential compliance risks and develop solutions to manage them over the long term.
  3. Organize multiple compliance solutions between different organizations as part of multi-stakeholder collaboration.

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.
