The MJ in Corporate and Business Law is a program for those who seek graduate-level training in legal analysis and regulatory compliance and ethics in a corporate, business, nonprofit, or government environment.
Delaware Law is one of few CCB-accredited law schools to offer an entirely online MJ in corporate and business law with a concentration in regulatory analysis and compliance. Career professionals benefiting from such training include corporate managers, compliance officers, risk managers, audit managers, anti-money laundering specialists, and government and agency officials, as well as those who seek positions in corporate-related fields. Students will receive intensive preparation to work in regulatory compliance, risk management, corporate financial fraud, investigations, auditing, compliance training, and more, to meet the needs and requirements of compliance programs for businesses.
Our compliance-expert faculty and cutting edge curriculum allows students to work through real-world simulations to learn the elements of an efficient and effective compliance program and resolve compliance and ethics issues. During the capstone course, students will prepare a complete compliance program.
Eligible students can seek the further credential of becoming a Certified Compliance & Ethics Professional (CCEP) or Certified in Healthcare Compliance (CHC). Upon successful completion of Delaware Law’s Compliance Certification Board (CCB)-accredited coursework, eligible students who graduate with a minimum grade point average of a 3.0 are exempt from the 1,500 hours of work experience in a compliance-related field normally required for eligibility to take a CCB exam.
This online MJ program accommodates the working professional who seeks to improve employment opportunities or to simply keep pace with changing regulatory requirements. The program can be completed part-time in two academic years. Students may choose to work at their own pace and complete the degree in as many as five years.
The program requires 30 credit hours of coursework. Some of the exciting courses offered include: Introduction to Law, Corporate Compliance Rules & Standards, Corporate Compliance and Ethics, Auditing & Monitoring, Corporate Deviance, and Business Principles.
