Students will have more academic choices this fall with the addition of a bachelor's degree program in Financial Fraud and Fraud Examination in the School of Business.

This new major extends beyond the traditional core knowledge of accounting and broadens the scope of student learning by incorporating key concepts from computer information systems, criminal investigations and accounting.

“Financial Fraud and Fraud Examination is one of the fastest growing fields in accounting, and financial fraud professionals are highly sought after in many fields including public accounting, corporate security and law enforcement,” said Dr. Patrick Malloy, assistant professor of accounting, who developed the program.  “We are working with the SBI, FBI and accounting firms to develop the best curriculum possible and to provide students with meaningful hands-on experiences.”

Six students are currently enrolled in the program, which will incorporate courses that already exist in the School of Business, mitigating the immediate need for additional resources such as faculty and classroom space. The program is expected to grow to 50 students by 2016.
