Financial Fraud Examination and Management

Financial Fraud Examination and Management Certificate

Fraud is an epidemic, and for those professionals who wish to excel, this field has much opportunity. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment of financial fraud examiners to increase 10% from 2016 to 2026.

With a graduate certificate in Financial Fraud Examination and Management from Saint Xavier University, you’ll be on your way to identifying, investigating and combatting fraud. The certificate, offered through SXU's Graham School of Management, is offered in person and 100 percent online and will prepare you to take the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) exam provided by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) to become an official financial fraud examiner. As a CFE, also known as a financial detective, you could work to help identify cases of corporate or government fraud, investigate the details of specific fraud claims or help bring wrongdoers to justice.
