Learn more about how our program can help you prepare for a career in one of the fastest growing industries: compliance.
With more than 40 online and on-campus courses developed specifically for the program, Loyola has an especially robust compliance curriculum. The MJ and LLM in Compliance and Enterprise Risk Management degree programs allow students to concentrate their studies solely in compliance and risk management. Students enrolled in the JD, MJ in Health Law, and LLM in Health Law degree programs may pursue a certificate in compliance studies as part of their program. The curriculum also allows for specific areas of focus in corporate, health care, global, privacy, or research compliance.
Loyola students are eligible to pursue industry certification in compliance or privacy through Loyola’s unique relationships with industry associations and accreditation bodies.
Many compliance positions require certification through the Compliance Certification Board (CCB). Based on the strength of Loyola’s curriculum in compliance, the CCB has accredited Loyola University Chicago School of Law. With this accreditation, Loyola JD, LLM, and MJ students who successfully complete at least 15 hours of compliance course work, on campus or online with a cumulative “B” average for those compliance courses, are eligible to sit for the CCB exams without having to fulfill professional work experience requirements.
The CCB offers the following health care-related certifications:
The CCB also offers the following corporate compliance related certifications:
A CCB certification is a valuable asset and is increasingly becoming a requirement for obtaining a compliance-related job. Loyola’s CCB accreditation allows students a distinct advantage in pursuing these CCB certifications.
Loyola has also partnered with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (the “IAPP”). The IAPP created the first professional certification information privacy, and IAPP designations are now the preeminent credentials in the privacy industry. The IAPP offers three certification options:
Loyola students are eligible to receive training, membership, and certification from the IAPP at a significantly discounted rate. For more information please visit the IAPP’s dedicated Loyola page.
