Boston University Launches New Executive LL.M. Concentration in Enterprise Risk Management and Compliance

New concentration offered entirely online

Boston University's School of Law has announced plans to launch a new concentration in Enterprise Risk Management and Compliance, as part of the school's Executive LL.M. in International Business Law.

The program aims to help students land jobs in the field of compliance management. "In light of recent enforcement trends, compliance has become an integral part of global business operations, and companies are moving to adapt by instituting internal risk management systems,” says Babak Boghraty, who teaches on the program.

In order to complete the new concentration, students must complete 12 or more credits from a list of courses that cover topics such as "Enterprise Risk Analytics," "Administrative Law," and "Cyber Law, Cyber Security, and Corporate Governance," among others.

Even though the Executive LL.M. program is blended, the new concentration can be completed entirely online. Additionally, pursuing the concentration allows students to complete the Executive LL.M. program with two—rather than the usual three—residency sessions, if they desire.

For more information, please see the BU press release announcing the launch of the new Executive LL.M. concentration. To learn more about Boston University's LL.M. programs, please see the school's full profile on LLM GUIDE.
