Elena studied Regulation and Compliance and is now Vice President, Senior Compliance Officer at Credit Suisse
Why did you choose to study at CCLS?
I was working in the area of Regulation & Compliance (as a consultant for one of the ‘Big 4’ companies) and was looking for a program, which would allow me to expand my knowledge acquired through this practical experience. CCLS offer was unique in offering an LLM with a focus on Regulation & Compliance.
What is your favourite memory of being a CCLS student?
Commuting to London. Honestly, one may not believe this, but I did my LLM part-time, while working 80% and living in Zurich. So being a CCLS student allowed me to explore London and to compile my own rating of the airports.
What does being a member of the CCLS community mean to you?
Having a connection with amazing people and excellent professionals throughout the world.
How did your CCLS experience contribute to your career?
I could certainly add an impressive line in the ‘education’ section of my CV and a nice title to my signature. Also, the course equipped me with a broad knowledge, which I can apply in my daily work. This is actually what I enjoyed most about the course: it offers a great mix of academic and practical approaches.
Why do you think prospective students should study at CCLS?
CCLS has a great community and location in central London. It also has an excellent course offering, very strong academics and the support from them is always available and solution oriented.
