The Fraud Examination Certificate is designed to prepare students to conduct financial fraud examinations in a variety of organizations. The curriculum is aligned with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) requirements to sit for the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) exam. The curriculum will focus on adding to existing accounting students’ and professionals’ knowledge of financial statement auditing and enable the certificate holder to achieve an additional professional certification beyond the Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Courses will include study of Fraud and Forensic Accounting, Data Analysis for Accounting, Forensic and Fraud Legalities, and Fraud Examination.
Throughout the program, students will be given opportunities to participate in hands-on learning activities. The program can be completed in one year and can be completed in on-campus, hybrid, and/or online courses.
