This course examines fraud within organizations. It is designed to help future managers and entrepreneurs build awareness of fraud risk and a deeper understanding of how they might be able to prevent fraud within their organizations. This course is not a forensic accounting course, though it uses accounting concepts such as internal controls and management controls. The course also applies psychology and sociology concepts, along with current research, to better understand how fraud begins. The course is taught using an interactive, case-based methodology. Current events may play an important role in this course.
NOTE: This course qualifies for CSI credit.
