An Executive Education Certificate Program
offered by the
Penn Program on Regulation and University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School

May 2023 (TBA) | 1:00 – 5:00pm ET
Format: Live, Virtual

Specific dates and registration for the May 2023 Program
will become available in Fall 2022.     

Each day, executives and professionals working in a wide variety of public- and private-sector and non-profit organizations — across every major sector of the economy — must take actions that have significant regulatory implications. To make smarter decisions, leaders and their organizations need to draw on an arsenal of analytic tools to assess regulatory problems and identify and evaluate solutions.

This course helps professionals build the skills needed to better analyze and make regulatory decisions, as well as to operate effectively within an ever-changing regulatory environment. Participants will hone the skills needed for understanding and assessing regulations — and for making smarter management and compliance-related decisions.

What Previous Participants Have to Say About the Program

“Thanks to the University of Pennsylvania for a world-class executive education program on regulation. The professors, content and course organization are truly remarkable!

“I appreciated the richness of the learning experience afforded by this course. I have taken many substantive lessons away from the course, and it has allowed me to reframe and reassess my own view and approach to regulation, as both a regulator and as a private citizen, and to energize and refresh that approach going forward. Well done!”

“This program was exceptionally done. The presenters and participants were knowledgeable, insightful and engaging and made the program an enjoyable experience.”

“I strongly encourage all regulatory executives, regulatory counsel (government and private sector), and lawmakers to attend.”

“Professors really motivated to teach their topics and to interact with the high level participants.”

The program was an excellent tour de force through the essentials of regulatory management and emerging trends.”

The program offers an excellent framework to continue thinking about innovative ways to approach regulations and their analysis.”
