Help Companies Prevent & Detect Fraud
In the current reporting environment, forensic accountants are in great demand for their accounting, auditing, legal, and investigative skills. Forensic accounting skills have become crucial in untangling the complicated accounting maneuvers that have muddled financial statements. By helping companies prevent and detect fraud, the forensic accountant’s role can easily evolve into a key component in the corporate governance system.
Students in the Forensic Accounting program will learn
- How to use the tools to both detect and prevent possible future fraudulent behavior by those developing and using financial data.
- What types of fraud are most common, and use their knowledge of criminal behavior to conduct interviews with employees of companies and other people involved in the possible fraud. Forensic accountants also help in other legal matters, such as bankruptcy or divorce proceedings.
- How to use ethical decision-making skills to meet the challenges of the professional and business environment.
