As the regulatory landscape continues to evolve, a sound understanding of the field is of equal value to those who work within regulatory organisations and those who are subject to regulation.

The LSE Regulation Strategy online certificate course offers an engaging, multidisciplinary look at the topic of regulation. You’ll engage with a cross-sectoral, contextualised approach to learning that will enable you to think critically about the regulatory environment as a whole. As a business leader, this will empower you to address regulatory change and its potential challenges, and in turn enhance your performance. Those working within the regulatory space will gain the knowledge and frameworks to critically examine and design regulatory systems and responses.

The Regulation Strategy online certificate course course aligns theory with the real world as it considers regulation through a practical lens, while still drawing on research-based academic material from LSE Law – one of the world's top law schools with an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and legal research.

Over eight weeks, you’ll unpack the different drivers of regulation and learn how to improve accountability in regulation through transparency and public participation. You’ll also examine transnational regulation and the opportunities and challenges it brings as well as the links between risk and regulation.
