This master’s program at the University of Passau is a two-year program with an entire module covering anti-corruption topics. The module, called “Governance, Institutions and Anti-Corruption”, has several courses of interest for those looking to learn more on the topic including courses such as “Economics of Corruption (in English)”, “Anti-Corruption and the Design of Institutions (in English)”,  “Case Studies in Corporate Fraud”, “Regulation (in English)”, a seminar on the economics of corruption, a seminar on political economy and regulation, “Corruption from a Civil Law Perspective (in English), and “Korruptionsbekämpfung durch Strafrecht” (Fighting Corruption using Criminal Law).

The Economics of Corruption course introduces economic analysis of corruption, defined as the misuse of public power for private benefit. Institutional economics is then utilized to assess how corrupt deals are contracted and enforced, and how corruption impacts policy credibility and investment decisions. Case studies and empirical research enrich the theoretical analysis. An emphasis is given to corruption in international business transactions, to quantitative analysis, and to measurement techniques.

Suggested reading for the course includes a book written by the course’s professor:

Lambsdorff, J. Graf (2007) “The New Institutional Economics of Corruption and Reform: Theory, Evidence and Policy”. Cambridge University Press.

An overview of the entire master’s program, including the individual modules, can be found in German here.
