FINRA and Georgetown McDonough Announce Partnership to Deliver Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional Program

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business today announced a partnership to deliver the FINRA Institute at Georgetown Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional (CRCP)® Program in Washington, DC.

The CRCP® program is the premier executive program designed specifically for securities industry regulatory and compliance professionals, and delivers a comprehensive and rigorous course of instruction on the foundation, theory and practical application of securities laws and regulation. Participants who successfully complete the program are designated Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professionals by the FINRA Institute at Georgetown.

“We are excited to be working closely with Georgetown’s exceptional business and law school professors on our CRCP® program,” said Chip Jones, Senior Vice President, FINRA Member Relations and Education. “In particular, the Georgetown McDonough faculty’s deep knowledge of the securities industry and regulation, and their experience with executive education, make them a great fit for our compliance certification program.”

“Located at the intersection of business, government, and international relations, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business develops principled leaders committed to serving both business and society,” said James Angel, associate professor and academic director of the CRCP® program. “We look forward to partnering with FINRA in order to prepare industry professionals and regulators to enhance their career development and their understanding of securities laws.”

Now in its 17th year—and with more than 1,200 graduates—the CRCP® program is geared toward high-potential regulatory, legal and compliance staff, as well as business-line professionals with increasing compliance responsibilities. In partnership with Georgetown McDonough’s Executive Custom Programs team, the program provides participants with access to world-renowned professors, expert faculty, other regulators and FINRA senior staff, and valuable insight into the complex compliance, legal and regulatory issues broker-dealers face.
