CII, ISB to launch course for compliance professionals along with GE

Course will commence in July 2016

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Indian School of Business (ISB) and GE have joined hands to launch an executive education programme for compliance professionals.

The partnership will offer public and private sector participants an opportunity to experience and interact with each other, apart from subject matter experts, to understand the underlying challenges in compliance management.

“While ethics form a portion of the management education curriculum, there are few programmes that assist company management design policies and processes to ensure ethical and fair business practices. We at the ISB are pleased to offer such a programme,’’ Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, ISB, said in a release issued on Tuesday.

The ‘Compliance Management Programme’, is a two-phased 10-day long programme which will commence in July 2016. It aims at providing participants with proven practical tips and techniques on how to best convert theory into practice and ensure ethical and compliant behaviour in their respective companies.

It may be noted here that a World Bank report had ranked India at 130 among 189 countries on ease of doing business and 76 among 168 countries on the Corruption Perception Index and compliance becomes a key concept in this context.
