Develop your understanding of what corruption is, where and why it proliferates, and what we can do to counteract it.

This course is the only full-time Masters in the UK addressing issues of corruption. You’ll explore:

  • how different disciplines define corruption and how this can lead to different anti-corruption approaches

  • specific examples – from systematic abuses of power by parties, politicians and civil servants to small-scale, petty misdemeanours

  • the role of business, unpacking the problems surrounding corruption and exploring potential solutions.

Peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration are key elements of the course and create a rich learning experience. Sharing knowledge and opinions allows us to look at issues from different perspectives. On graduation, you’ll have an understanding of corruption in many different contexts. You’ll also have the practical tools to design and put in place anti-corruption responses.

You’ll learn from academics and practitioners dedicated to interdisciplinary research and policy impact in our world-leading Centre for the Study of Corruption

We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities described in this prospectus. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to government or regulatory requirements, or unanticipated staff changes, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
