Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly and I go into the weeds to explore what additional educational degrees or certifications  a mid-career compliance professional should consider obtaining to further their career.

Some of the highlights include:

  • How did Matt become interested in this question?
  • What types of additional university degrees will assist the compliance professional?
  • Why a law degree will not help the mid-career compliance professional?
  • Does legal training apply to compliance any longer?
  • Why you should assess your skill set and then move to fill any gaps to become a more well-rounded compliance professional.
  • Why other university disciplines such as behavioral phycology, Human Resources and Risk Management are more valuable than law degrees for the compliance professional.
