ICA Certificate in Managing Sanctions Risk

Overview

Sanctions can be a complex topic and dealing with sanctioned parties can be a risky business. National or international sanctions may be issued against individuals, entities, groups or nations; or even trading activities/particular sectors. Those bodies charged with enforcing sanctions compliance are particularly active at the moment, with multiple fines for firms in recent years stretching into billions of dollars.

The ICA Certificate in Managing Sanctions Risk provides you with an opportunity to explore the frameworks and drivers of sanctions, the risks that sanctions present to firms and the controls implemented to address those risks. The course will also investigate key areas of focus such as sanctions screening and managing alerts, sanctions evasion typologies and various ‘real life’ case studies that demonstrate the consequences of failing to robustly manage sanctions risk.

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