Graduate Diploma in International Compliance and Business Ethics


This programme is exclusively held online
Next session in September 2023
Registrations are open until 17 June 2023: espaceadmission.univ-catholille.fr


The graduate level diploma (Diplôme universitaire) in international compliance and business ethics is an online and bilingual program for students and professionals seeking an advanced specialisation in corporate compliance and business ethics with a focus on the multilevel current regulatory approach.

Within the tradition fallowed by the law faculty of the Université Catholique de Lille, 70% of the courses are taught in english by native speaking experts specialised in different subfields of corporate compliance.

The diploma has been designed perfectly in line with the Master Program Business and competition law. Indeed, the Diploma International Compliance and business ethics completes the advanced approach to competition law compliance provided in master 2 Business and competition law, offering strong and complementary knowledge and practice in major corporate compliance and business ethics issues. In this perspective, both degrees allow students to build deep and solide compliance programs able to secure business conducts by making a clear difference between conducts inducing violations and sanctions from valid and secured strategic business decisions avoiding unnecessary over compliance.

The programme may be of interest for :

  • students from law faculties specialised in business law, or students from business schools (Ecoles de commerce), or Instituts d’études politiques (Science Po).
  • Compliance officers, risk experts, corporate managers or global corporate law advisers, lawyers, civil servants interested in building a strong expertise in compliance and business ethics

Content of the programme and evaluation
The students will receive advanced training in anti-corruption mechanisms, fight against illicite finance, terrorism and money laudering, as well as global abuse of law by corporations, in particular tax evasion, data protection and cyber security, duty of care and compliance officer methodology. The evaluation process takes place through an individual pratical exercice allowing students to build and individual and effective compliance program.


The graduate diploma (D.U.) is divided in two types of skills that may formally represent two separate graduate level certificates. It is possible to register and follow the courses of the global DU or only the courses of one graduate level certificate that suits the best the professional expectations of the applicant.

Indeed, under the agreement signed by the two institutions in February 2022 and presented during the webinar jointly organised by the FLD, the DLS and the WEC, “Fraud is on a Global Scale! Are you next?”, graduates of the ICBE diploma of the Faculty of Law of the Université Catholique de Lille will be able, if they wish to, to follow online the courses of the Delaware Law School allowing them to obtain an American certificate in compliance, i.e. either the Corporate Law Regulatory Analysis § Compliance Certificate or the Certificate in Global Financial and Cyber Crimes
