Also referred to as fraud management or root cause analysis, fraud and financial crime prevention and detection programs have become a critical component of any proactive investigation process. This final course builds upon advanced investigative skills presented in the program by exposing students with these crime prevention and detection methodologies. Students learn proactive prevention, detection and investigation model strategies. This will highlight the importance of strategically analyzing fraud and financial crime investigation outcomes to determine why they occurred so that controls can be put in place to prevent them from reoccurring. As the capstone course for the program, students will also be required to complete and present their final investigative reports at the end of this course. Final investigative reports and presentations integrate all of the competencies learned during the program. This also provides students with the opportunity to see the connection between the courses, learning objectives and how they apply during a typical forensic investigation. Students are provided with an opportunity to network with industry professionals and a career development coach to assist them in their ongoing professional development.
