On Wednesday, July 5, 2017, LUISS and the Italian National Anti-Corruption Authority signed a memorandum of understanding to create a master’s program on compliance and preventing corruption in the public and private sectors.
Signing the document were LUISS Rector Paola Severino and ANAC President Raffaele Cantone.
“The fight for legality can only be won by training leading figures in public administration as well as creating a class of professionals that are able to install and apply rules to prevent corruption both in the world of public affairs and private enterprise,” declares Professor Paola Severino. She adds: “For this reason, LUISS considers extremely important the memorandum with the heads of ANAC, in order to launch a master’s program in corruption prevention that will have an important role in the cultural training of those who will work in the long battle against corruption.”
Designed to be a reference point in advanced training in corruption prevention, the course welcomes public administration employees, representatives of associations, managers and entrepreneurs from the private sector, bankers and financiers, company administrators, lawyers, accountants, and holders of master’s degrees interested in the specialization.
Thanks to a specialized faculty, the program offers participants tools to fight organized crime as well as juridical and managerial knowledge to operate in various areas of prevention. ANAC’s participation offers participants additional instruments and policies to prevent corruption.
“Education is a fundamental aspect not only to understand the laws, most of which are recent, but to create a tangible public ethic that pervades all levels and involves the private sector as well. ANAC truly believes that this can happen and offers its years of experience in the sector. The collaboration with a prestigious university like LUISS helps us continue in this direction,” adds ANAC President Raffaele Cantone.
The educational program offered by LUISS and ANAC is part of a larger commitment of the university, working alongside bodies that fight illegality, to support a growing sense of civic awareness and common responsibility, to provide instruments to develop a culture of respect for the rules, of tolerance and of liberty.
Registration for the 2017-2018 academic year opens in September. The program begins in December 2017.
