6th IOSCO/PIFS – Harvard Law School Global Certificate Program for Regulators of Securities Markets – Phase II, Cambridge (MA), US, 12-16 December 2022
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. Attendees have up to three years to complete both phases of the Global Certificate Program. 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. This year marks the 6th edition of the program which was inaugurated in 2016.
Phase I, hosted by IOSCO, consists of the following components: online learning materials and in-person modules on regulation and compliance. Under normal circumstances, the in-person modules are conducted at IOSCO´s premises in Madrid (Spain). In 2022, Phase I was delivered in a virtual format and consisted of virtual live sessions held on 6-10 June 2022, as well as pre-recorded on-demand presentations and other online content. Phase I covers the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance and related current critical issues and is delivered primarily by current or former securities regulators.
Phase II, hosted by PIFS-HLS, consists of a one week-long in-person module that, under normal circumstances, is conducted on campus at the Harvard Law School in Cambridge (Massachusetts, US). This year, Phase II will be held again in-person at Harvard Law School, on 12-16 December 2022. It will be possible to either attend the program in-person, or attend the live sessions virtually (including access to the session recordings in view of time zone differences). This session will examine current and future regulatory challenges and emerging issues and will be delivered by leading academics, securities regulators and public policy makers.
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.
