The IACP Academic Programme
The International Academy of Cards and Payments (IACP) is a global educational and professional body for the cards and payments sector worldwide. Designed by senior cards and payments experts and academics from across the globe, the IACP curriculum sets out to share industry best practices in face-to-face classroom seminars directed by a faculty of over 70 leading industry practitioners.
IACP courses are delivered in both nationally focused and international open programmes as well as within individual financial institutions. The core content is the same regardless of whether courses are delivered in different languages or different countries. Having said this, IACP programmes are always adapted and customised to local markets.
IACP operates worldwide through partnerships with graduate schools of leading universities, business schools, banking academies and cards/payments associations – each of which provides joint accreditation in the relevant market to the diplomas and/or certifications.
Participants in IACP programmes will receive:
- All lectures delivered by professionals with more than 20 years’ industry experience
- Textbooks created exclusively for the IACP
- Access to relevant Lafferty management reports
- Access to the online resources of Lafferty Insights
