ACCT 415 - Special Topics in Forensic Accounting


Credits: (3)
This course integrates the skills, knowledge, principles, and theories learned in the forensic program and applies them to more advanced topic areas such as, forensic and fraud investigative techniques, digital forensic analysis, fraudulent financial reporting, white-collar criminal behavior, litigation support and commercial damages, expert testimony and report writing, and business valuations. Students will focus on an area of special interest to them and develop an independent study program for the course with the professor. Independent study activities may involve internships, completing self-study courses sponsored by relevant organizations, study and completion of requirements for the CFE exam, among others. Students will also select a relevant topic or case study in their area of choice, and write and present a comprehensive analytical paper. The study of forensic accounting provides an excellent opportunity to develop capstone experiences and integrate skills developed in the fraud and forensic accounting specialty areas that the student wishes to pursue in their career. Prerequisite(s): Successful completion of ACCT 311 , ACCT 312 , ACCT 413 , and ACCT 414 , and permission of program director. (Spring)
