IOSCO and the Program on International Financial Systems at Harvard Law School (PIFS-HLS) jointly developed this two-phase program to offer IOSCO members an executive education program that is exclusively tailored for regulators of securities markets.

Successful attendees will be awarded a joint certificate of participation issued by IOSCO and PIFS-Harvard Law School. Also, IOSCO members may attend any part of the program on a non-certificate basis. Following the inauguration of the program in 2016, it is envisaged that going forward both phases will be conducted once every year.
Phase I consists of three components: online learning materials; an in-person module on regulation (17-21 June 2019); and an in-person module on compliance (24-28 June 2019). The in-person modules will be conducted at IOSCO´s premises in Madrid (Spain) from 17-28 June 2019, and will cover the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance. These two week-long sessions will be delivered primarily by current or former securities regulators. It is possible to register for either one or both modules. Phase I is offered free of charge to all IOSCO members. Online registration is now closed.
Phase II consists of a one week-long in-person module that will be conducted on campus at the Harvard Law School in Cambridge (Massachusetts, US) from 9-13 December. This one week-long session will examine current and future regulatory challenges and emerging issues and will be delivered by leading academics, securities regulators and public policy makers. Phase II is open to all IOSCO members. The tuition fee for Phase II at Harvard Law School is USD 7,000. Online registration is now open. Deadline to register is October 15th.
While any IOSCO member employee may attend the program, it is specifically designed for regulatory staff with strong leadership potential and approximately five to seven years of regulatory experience.
