USC Gould's online certificates in Compliance, Financial Compliance, Health Care Compliance, and Human Resources Law and Compliance are accredited by the Compliance Certification Board (CCB). The certificates may be earned on a standalone basis or concurrent with an online Master of Studies in Law (MSL) and Master of Laws (LLM) degree.
The CCB sets the standards that individuals must meet to receive and hold certification in compliance. With certification, compliance and ethics professionals achieve credible recognition as qualified compliance practitioners, which is often required for advanced positions in the field.
Students who complete USC Gould's CCB-accredited coursework are exempt from the work experience requirements and may sit for a CCB exam upon graduation.
