DAS Compliance Management

Ein branchenübergreifendes Programm für Compliance-Profis



Our programs are about the “how” of compliance:  how to approach, implement, manage, and improve compliance as part of company’s efforts to create value, improve its culture, and protect its assets and reputation.

With over 10 years’ experience teaching in this area, the University of St. Gallen Executive School offers various options for those who are or want to be compliance officers, or those who work with or supervise compliance officers, to deepen and widen their skills on compliance.  


Our programs are aimed at compliance officers, risk officers, financial risk specialists, internal auditors, external auditors, and regulators.  They also address the needs of members of the Board of Directors, members of the Executive Board, financial controllers, in-house lawyers, and outside counsel.

Knowing laws and regulations is no longer enough to effectively manage compliance. Increasingly, companies, non-profit institutions and government agencies are in growing need of talented executives capable of driving forward a holistic but robust compliance agenda.

This means having a multiple set of managerial and leadership skills and having the ability and courage to interact with and influence the board, the CEO, and senior management, and maintain a positive relationship with regulators and other stakeholders.  


Under our CAS I, we offer a mainly German-language certificate program (with some English). It involves 3 modules of a week each focused on organization, culture, and the law related to compliance (Swiss and international).   Discussions in class are in German and English, and students can do exams in any Swiss official language or English

Under our CAS II, we offer an English-only option that also includes options on U.S. legal and compliance risk. It also involves 3 modules of a week each.  Students can do exams in English or in any Swiss official language.

Under our diploma program (DAS), we offer mixed German and English advanced studies, focused on the higher management and leadership challenges of compliance.  Among other professionals, this program helps develop future Group and Chief Compliance Officers.   The DAS involves six obligatory modules, one elective module, and two distant learning modules, including writing of a diploma paper.  In total it involves 45 days.  Students can do exams and the diploma paper in English or in any Swiss official language.

In this course I have acquired a more holistic and deeper know-how about Compliance Management. The study documents help me in my daily compliance work, for example as a reference book or basis for argumentation. The HSG Certificate in Compliance Management (CM-HSG) was well worthwhile for me.

I was very excited about the seminar. It offered a well-balanced mix of academic knowledge and practical case studies, top-class speakers, an interested and motivated field of participants from various industries, and interesting social events and evening programs. The entire course is condensed into three weeks. As a consultant to financial service providers, I have since been able to apply many exciting approaches in practice.
