This course combines forensic accounting with data analytics. Students explore common fraud schemes, and learn how to identify and investigate them. Students then apply data analytic methods to explore fraud in an accounting case, and communicate their findings to practicing forensic accountants who provide real-world guidance and feedback.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
