Centennial College’s Financial Fraud Investigation offering stands out thanks to its short length and the post­graduate  possibilities.  For  example,  in addition  to receiving  an Ontario  College  Graduate Certificate,  the  program content  also  prepares students for the Certified Fraud Examiner examination. Experienced   Financial   Fraud   Investigations   faculty   members   are   experts   in   the   industry   and   ensure   students   obtain  practical hands­on learning in addition to the anecdotes that they share to enhance lessons. Geared to the motivated,  mature learner with career experience, the Financial Fraud Investigation undertaking offers essential skills and knowledge  in forensic accounting and investigation techniques, equipping them to work in entry­level positions in the field of forensic   accounting and audit investigations within the public or private sector. Among the key topics students study in this offering   are:  investigating and analyzing financial evidence, testifying as a witness, becoming involved in criminal investigations  and uncovering financial evidence in employee or insurance fraud cases, and investigating in the rapidly evolving area of  computer fraud.  Students attend six courses in each of their two semesters. In the first semester, they partake in: Introduction to Fraud  Examinations, Financial Crimes Investigation, Introduction to Intelligence Gathering, Financial Institutions & Identity Theft,   International   Legal   Elements   and   Professional   Court   Presentation.   Meanwhile,   second   semester   Financial   Fraud  Investigation courses include: Advanced Fraud Examinations, Forensic Accounting, Investigative Methodologies, Ethics   and   Fraud   Criminology,   Practical   Fraud   Investigation   and   Case   Management,   and   Interview   and   Interrogations.   All   courses solely focus on preparing students for speedy entry into the field.  In addition, students study out of Centennial College’s largest location, Progress Campus. This campus houses other   financial programs, allowing for peer interaction as well as networking. Successful   analysis   and   findings   reported   by   practicing   professionals   may   mean   the   difference   between   whether  perpetrators  avoid detection of their  illegal activities or are brought  to justice. In  most  cases, success  is directly and  primarily dependent upon the knowledge, skills and abilities of the professionals performing the work. As such, positions in   financial accounting fraud  and financial fraud investigation come with varying responsibilities  and include:  Forensic  Accounting/Litigation Consultant, Tax Auditor, Gaming Investigator, Insurance Investigator, Bank Investigator and Internal  Auditor.
