Master in Forensic Accounting and Financial Criminology

Programme Overview

The programme aims at producing graduates with a broad-based introduction to the nature and purpose of forensic accounting. Graduates are exposed to courses well beyond a ‘legal’ focus and provide an opportunity to study skills in investigative techniques and the collection of data as well as the skills necessary to not only identify poor management but also unethical and fraudulent activities. Graduates are expected to acquire independent accounting expert witness skills including preparation for court appearance and cross examinations. Students may register either for full-time or part time study for the Master in Forensic Accounting & Financial Criminology.
