Course Description

The University of California is increasingly involved in international collaborations, ranging from overseas research projects, to student exchanges, to formal affiliations. While the University expects our workforce to maintain the highest ethical and professional standards in all interactions, regulations such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) may affect international collaborations in unexpected ways. Failing to manage bribery and corruption risks can be very costly, both from a financial and reputational standpoint as well as for individual civil and criminal liability. Aggressive FCPA enforcement, moving toward the direction of strict liability, highlights the need for education and the importance of implementing effective anti-corruption compliance strategies. Within this enforcement landscape, The University of California presents the interactive online course, The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and Anti-Corruption. Who should take this course: Faculty who collaborate internationally. University personnel who travel internationally. Administrative support staff. Parties hosting foreign visitors and delegations – even from visiting universities. Financial disbursements personnel. Compliance professionals Knowing the issues and implementing a program for managing the risks is the best way to have a successful international collaboration.
