Certificate in Fraud

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Fraud occurs within organizations when employees embezzle monies, engage in bribery or extortion, steal tangible or intangible assets or enter into transactions that create a conflict of interest.  Fraud can also occur due to external threats such as corporate espionage, terrorism, and hacking.   Fraud has recently emerged as a new academic discipline.  As a result, many individuals have not been formally trained in the types of fraud, assessing an organization’s risk for fraud, or preventing or detecting fraud early.  This certificate is specifically designed to provide a foundation about the nature of fraud, the characteristics of a fraudster, the types of fraud, the basic principles of fraud prevention, detection, and investigation and how to assess an organization’s fraud risk exposure.        

Certificate in Fraud - Credits: 12
