Delaware Law School Announces New Global Financial & Cyber Crimes Degrees
Delaware Law School is on a mission to equip students with the expertise necessary to tackle financial and cybercrime. Their new Global Financial & Cyber Crimes degree programs are among the first of their kind in the nation.
Diverse international sectors—from banks, financial services organizations, and payment companies to government and law enforcement agencies like the FBI—have begun to recognize the necessity of hiring experts in financial and cyber law. Insider trading, money laundering, and even terrorist funding and bribery schemes are all on the rise.
Delaware Law School’s LLM, MJ, and certificate courses prepare students for careers battling money laundering schemes, cybersecurity breaches and more. Students learn practical skills from experienced faculty, including professors working in the field as certified fraud examiners and anti-money-laundering specialists themselves. Faculty not only serve as teachers, but mentors, offering students post-grad advice and helping them make connections in America’s corporate capital and beyond.
Delaware Law School prides itself on providing award-winning educational opportunities for people working outside the courtroom. Their certificate and Master of Jurisprudence online programs prepare non-lawyers for the ACAMS and ACFE exams. The programs’ first graduates will go on to become certified financial crimes specialists and investigators, fraud examiners, anti-money-laundering specialists, financial crimes analysts, and more. No GRE, LSAT, or GMAT scores are required to apply. Those with a Juris Doctor can receive a Master of Laws in Global Financial and Cybercrimes.
As companies continue to expand, their financial and security infrastructures continue to be at risk,” explains Eileen A. Grena-Piretti, Assistant Dean and Executive Director at Delaware Law School.
Delaware Law’s Masters of Jurisprudence graduates will be equipped with the practical skills to assist with global financial fraud and cyber-defense solutions.
“We’re really on the cutting-edge,” Grena-Piretti notes. “Cybersecurity and financial crimes impact all of us on a day-to-day basis. We are preparing our global alumni to answer the call.”
