Core Curriculum Certificate Course

A Two-Week Course in Financial Regulation and Supervision

Sunday, April 29, 2018 - Friday, May 11, 2018

This program is designed to help prepare future leaders of financial sector supervisory agencies. As financial systems become increasingly integrated, as innovation and competition spread within and between different industry sectors, and as new players enter the market and disrupt traditional business models, successful supervisory agency managers need to have a broad-based understanding of the objectives, principles and best practices for regulating and supervising the banking, insurance, securities and pensions industries. 

The Core Curriculum Certificate Course offers a comprehensive foundation in this essential knowledge. Designed and delivered by former senior supervisors of the different financial sectors, the course builds graduates’ capacity to provide effective leadership in their agencies and to advocate for sound regulation and supervision with political and industry leaders and other stakeholders. The course utilizes Toronto Centre’s proven interactive approach to learning by extensive use of group activities and case studies.
