Full Program Description

News surrounding corporate corruption has had a significant impact on businesses, particularly the accounting industry. In response, the government has enacted sweeping accounting and business laws such as the Sarbanes-Oxley 2002 legislation.

Additionally, many professional organizations including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) have made the prevention, detection, and prosecution of fraud and accounting abuse a priority. This four-course graduate certificate in forensic accounting is designed to help students apply techniques in identifying, collecting, and examining evidence, including how to identify financial statement misrepresentation, transaction reconstruction, and tax evasion.
