Financial Fraud Examination and Management Concentration
Everyday across the world, thousands of organizations (businesses, not-for-profits, and governmental agencies) are victimized by fraud and millions of individuals are victims of crimes such as identity theft. Who commits these bad acts? Why? And, how? Because financial crime and cyber breaches continue to rise, more companies are hiring professionals with specialized knowledge to combat these issues. According to the Association of certified fraud examiners, more than 75 percent of Fortune 500 companies employ certified fraud examiners.
Fraud examination and management involves the process of resolving allegations of fraud from inception to disposition.
