This course provides a comprehensive overview of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), a U.S. federal law known primarily for two of its main provisions–accounting transparency and bribery of foreign officials. As institutions widen their global work and participate in international partnerships and payments, understanding the FCPA becomes especially important. The course provides learners with an introduction to the FCPA, understanding FCPA violations, and mitigation and monitoring best practices. Additionally, the course discusses significant overseas activities that can affect organizations, particularly universities and research organizations. It includes a digestible outline of the act, strategies to avoid violations, case studies, quizzes, and additional resources.
Personnel at all levels of an institution, especially those directly or indirectly involved in international financial transactions or contracts on behalf of their organization, can benefit from this course. Additionally, individuals in administrative, leadership, general counsel, finance, and other operational departments may find the course helpful.
