This programme is designed to establish a gold standard for the most senior practitioners working within financial crime compliance roles and engage professionals who aspire to reach leadership positions. Suitable applicants would operate at the most senior level including: Global Heads/Directors of Financial Crime Risk, Directors/Non-executive Directors, Chief Risk Officer, Head of Risk, Head of AML, Head of Financial Crime Prevention, Head of Fraud Prevention, Head of Group Compliance, Head of Compliance, lawyers, accountants and auditors in senior roles and other individuals operating at a significant level within the sphere of Financial Crime Compliance (FCC) as an aspect of their role. Aspirants would be likely to have substantial experience both as practitioners and at a senior level: such as members of a firm’s Senior Management team, Senior Analyst, Senior HR Officer, Senior Risk Officer, Chief Internal Auditor or an equivalent role (i.e. certain types of consultant). Applicants for the programme, therefore, must:

  • hold a first degree and be a senior practitioner (i.e. hold a senior management role) with at least three years’ experience in that role or at the equivalent level of seniority; or
  • possess an ICA Diploma and have at least five years’ experience in a related discipline and currently work in a role that includes senior level responsibilities and regular engagement with senior practitioners; or
  • have at least ten years’ experience in a relevant senior management role.

It is normally expected that individuals working at this level will have a first degree. The ICA Professional Postgraduate Diploma provides additional surety, certifying the professional standing of individuals as senior practitioners in FCC roles, but can also can be used as a platform for attaining higher-level qualifications.

Please note that your eligibility will be assessed before being accepted on to the course. You can do this by sending your CV & Job Description directly to studentservices@int-comp.org or by uploading a copy of your documents when you apply online.
