Corporate and Health Care Compliance

Home / Degree Programs & Focus Areas / Corporate and Health Care Compliance

Companies across a spectrum of industries – insurance, banking, health care – deal with a complex web of laws and regulations that impact how they do business.  In response, these companies are forming and growing large compliance departments to ensure that obligations under the  laws and regulations are being met by the organization.

Compliance departments are charged with interpreting the laws and regulations that impact a business, creating policies and processes to ensure the organization adheres to these standards, and designing and implementing reporting mechanisms to track the data necessary for the company to show regulatory bodies that this function is taken seriously.

Not surprisingly, compliance-related jobs are currently one of the hottest job growth areas in the U.S.  Our Master of Legal Studies degree with an emphasis in Corporate and Health Care Compliance is designed to help  pivot their career to a compliance-related area or compliance professionals looking to take their careers to a new level.
