Boston University School of Law has announced a new online certificate in Enterprise Risk Management and Compliance, in response to growing demands for regulatory compliance experts.

The 12-credit certificate program, which will launch in fall 2016, will cover topics such as risk management in international transactions and corporate governance.

BU, which developed the certificate in conjunction with its Metropolitan College's Risk Management program, says that the program is intended to address a growing market demand for professionals who understand legal risks in a variety of different industries. 

“We have launched this certificate to address the challenges enterprises face in understanding the rules that govern their activities, as well as the risks they assume if they are not on top of regulatory requirements,” says John Riccardi, assistant dean for graduate and international programs, in a press release. “We expect the demand for expertise in compliance will only continue to grow.”
