The Federal Government is on a spending spree, and the total this year could exceed 11 trillion dollars. There is one problem: the financial fraud estimate for this level of expenditure is $1.5 trillion dollars! It will take at least ten years to unravel such a vast amount of fraudulent activity. Federal agencies, as well as private sector investigators, will be in high demand to sort through the mess. Join the University of New Haven’s Accounting program and the premier Investigations program to enhance your employment opportunities in the field of financial crimes investigations.
Topics that will be covered are money laundering, healthcare fraud investigations, bribery and corruption, IRS criminal investigations, evidence collection, and the integration of accounting knowledge and financial crimes investigations. Guest lecturers come from a variety of backgrounds: FBI, IRS criminal investigations, and private sector investigations.
Participants who successfully complete Introduction to Financial Crime Investigations will earn three college credits.
This course is offered virtually via Zoom.
