If you're interested in finance and have a knack for detective work, consider a career as a Fraud Examiner. A fraud examiner is a professional of high moral character who investigates insurance and other claims for fraudulent activity. Fraud examiners will analyze property books, balance sheets and other information, looking for patterns that suggest inaccurate reporting or fraudulent activity. Fraud examiners can work for private firms, insurance companies or even the government. Certified fraud examiners may also testify in court on the basis of information they found.
Alvernia University will be offering four courses this spring and summer to help you prepare to take the Fraud Examination Test. The first course, Financial Accounting, is offered 1/18 - 3/10. This course emphasizes conceptual framework of accounting to enable students to analyze transactions in terms of their effects upon the financial condition of a business. The second course, Accounting Principles, is offered 3/14 - 5/5. This course builds upon and expands fundamental accounting principles such as corporate asset, debt and equity accounts, preparation and analysis of financial statements, and impact of cash flow.
The third course, Fraud Examiniation, is offered 5/16 - 6/30. This course will help you study how and why occupational fraud is committed, how fraudulent conduct can be deterred, and how allegations of fraud should be investigated and resolved. And lastly, the fourth course, Forensic Accounting, is offered 7/5 - 8/18. You will learn the professional skills necessary to detect, investigate and prevent fraud and white-collar crime through the financial records of a business.For detailed course information, please see our schedule.
