5th IOSCO/PIFS – Harvard Law School Global Certificate Program for Regulators of Securities Markets – Phase II, Cambridge, MA, USA (TBC), 13-17 December 2021
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 5th edition of the program which was inaugurated in 2016.
Phase I, hosted by IOSCO, consists of three components: online learning materials; an in-person module on regulation; and an in-person module on compliance. Under normal circumstances, the in-person modules will be conducted at IOSCO´s premises in Madrid (Spain) and will cover the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance. This year, Phase I will be delivered in a virtual format and will consist of virtual live sessions to be held on 14-17 June 2021, as well as pre-recorded on-demand presentations and other online content to be studied in advance. These sessions will be delivered primarily by current or former securities regulators.
Phase II, hosted by PIFS-HLS, 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 13-17 December 2021. (Note: depending on the circumstances, Phase II may be delivered in a virtual format.) 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.
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.
