How’s this for a win-win? Spend a couple of years in the sunny strip-club capital of America and then head north with a shiny new MBA in compliance, the first of its kind, says the University of South Florida. It may not make you terribly popular around the office, but it certainly might attract the attention of recruiters, HR departments and the sort of people who might like to say to assorted regulatory authorities, “Look at my compliance MBAs!”
The University of South Florida is launching a graduate certificate program in Compliance, Risk and Anti-Money Laundering that it says will provide skills to students seeking careers in business risk assessment, including in the growing anti-money laundering field.

Compliance salaries also continue to rise, according to the latest data compiled by Robert Half International Inc. The projected national average starting salary in 2015 for a compliance officer at a small company ranges from $82,500 to $108,500. It rises to $99,750 to $132,750 at a midsize company and to $109,500 to $150,000 at a large company, the Robert Half data show.
