Sanctions are a key tool in the armoury of the global fight against financial crime. Understanding sanctions remains a complex yet fascinating topic and crucial for developing a well-rounded strategy in combating financial crime.

The qualification explores the intricacies and challenges of meeting sanctions obligations.

This Advanced Certificate is a must-have qualification for anyone involved in identifying, understanding, and managing sanctions risk exposure.

This course is awarded in association with Alliance Manchester Business School, the University of Manchester.
