Each and every day provides us with new opportunities for innovation. At IE Law School, we embrace this reality by constantly updating our programs and preparing our students for the professional world that awaits them. With a comprehensive approach to Compliance, Governance and Ethics, our Master in Global Corporate Compliance is one of many examples of our dedication to innovation. Now that it’s accredited by the Compliance Certification Board (CCB)®, we are able to offer students a truly international experience as they participate in the only Compliance-related Master to be accredited by the CCB® outside of the United States.

This accreditation will enable our students to be eligible to access the Certified Compliance & Ethics Professional – International (CCEP-I)® examination, and if they successfully pass the exam, they will be able to promote compliance and ethics through the certification of qualified compliance professionals around the world. This certification not only enhances certificate-holders’ credibility within their organizations and among their peers, but also encourages continued personal and professional growth in the practice of compliance and ethics and provides a standard of requisite knowledge required for certification.

The Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® is an independent body made up of compliance and ethics professionals who have developed criteria to determine competence in the practice of compliance and ethics across various industries and specialty areas. CCB is governed by a board of directors who are appointed by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and the Health Care Compliance Association’s (SCCE & HCCA) Board of Directors.


Every year we receive students from all corners of the world. They come with different aspirations, ideas and expectations to join an environment defined by its international outlook and rich diversity.

"The Master in Global Corporate Compliance has helped us broaden our knowledge in compliance, while exploring transparency, independence, integrity, accountability, and sustainability. Compliance goes beyond business—it’s a solution to many of the issues plaguing society.

IE’s teaching methodology has helped us become more aware of events outside the classroom. With high-level discussions on important issues and the latest trends in compliance, we have become better professionals with a powerful set of soft skills. Most importantly, IE's focus on diversity and inclusion has enabled us to build a sense of global citizenship. Sharing ideas and knowledge is a powerful tool to foster collaboration, tolerance, innovation, and long-term value."
