Fraud, Minor

One of the most misunderstood and underestimated aspects of our economy is the amount of money and potential jobs and benefits lost due to fraud and waste in the private and public sectors, charities and non-government organizations. Fraud occurs in all disciplines including but not limited to education (fraudulent reporting of test results, plagiarism, embezzlement), all aspects of healthcare (fraudulent licensing, fraudulent medical billing), business and business related careers (sport management, resort management and business-with employees stealing assets, engaging in identity theft, and corruption), criminology (white collar crime) and homeland security (funding of terrorism through fraud and complex financial crimes). As a result, students in any discipline can benefit from the minor in fraud.
