Target group

The course is aimed at two main target audiences:

·         Practitioners who would be principally drawn from various groups: operational line managers, business executives, public administrators, internal control specialists (e.g. investigators, compliance officers, inspectors, etc.) and external monitors and change agents (e.g. media, NGOs, think tanks, etc.).

·         Educational Administrators, particularly from higher education and Academics – especially business professors - who develop similar courses at their own universities, both within the region and beyond.

Integrity Action's courses are unique in implementing a multi-stakeholder and problem-oriented approach, using real-life examples to tackle integrity problems. Bringing together participants with various backgrounds enhances the information and experience exchanges and enables students to look at a problem from different perspectives.

Applications are welcome from participants with line management responsibility for protecting programmatic integrity, whether in government (e.g. in a ministries, local government), in an NGO (e.g. delivering major programmes in a post-disaster setting or a low-governance environment), in business (especially those operating in some key emerging markets), or supporting and facilitating reforms in other institutions as a donor, through the UN, the European Commission, foundations, and similar organizations.


The requirements for policy practitioners is in all but rare cases the possession of an advanced degree (MA and above), as well as a minimum of five years' work experience in a relevant field.
For educational administrators and academics, the minimum requirement in all but rare cases will be the possession of a PhD as well as a senior administrative position or faculty position in a curriculum that would enable the participant to develop and implement a policy-relevant course in the near future.
