As institutions widen their global work and participate in international partnerships and payments, understanding the FCPA becomes especially important. The course provides learners with an introduction to the FCPA, an understanding of FCPA violations, and mitigation and monitoring best practices. Additionally, the course discusses significant overseas activities that can affect organizations, particularly universities and research organizations. It includes a digestible outline of the act, strategies to avoid violations, case studies, quizzes, and additional resources.
