Students review and analyze real-world case studies related to fraud prevention, detection, deterrence, and investigation.

    Upon completion of this certificate program, students will be able to apply accounting methods and financial techniques necessary to uncover, solve and document financial crimes while following prescribed criminal investigation procedures.

    Program Outcomes:

    Students will demonstrate an understanding of, and apply principles relating to, the nature of fraud and forensic accounting.

    The Certificate in Forensic Accounting is designed to prepare students for the Certified Fraud Examiner examination. There are other requirements to earning this credential; learn about them on the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners website: https://www.acfe.com/become-cfe-qualifications.aspx

    Professional credentials vary by state and include requirements outside of education, which may include exams, background checks, work experience, and more. Post University does not guarantee licensure. It is ultimately the responsibility of individual students to be in charge of their own licensure process and to make sure that all requirements are met in obtaining licensure. Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body.
