Become An Expert of Financial Fraud Investigation by Attending Centennial College  Introduction   to   Fraud   Examinations,   Financial   Crimes   Investigation,   Introduction   to   Intelligence   Gathering,   Financial  Institutions & Identity Theft, International Legal Elements, Forensic Accounting, Investigative Methodologies ­ these are   just   some   of   the   interesting   and   informative   courses   in   which   students   of   Centennial   College’s   Financial   Fraud   Investigation program participate. The two­semester offering, which results in an Ontario College Graduate Certificate, is   designed for applicants who have previously completed a diploma or degree program but want to learn more about the  field of financial fraud investigations in order to start a new career. Therefore, applicants must submit an official transcript   demonstrating proof of successful completion of a post­secondary diploma in business or accounting. They may also be   required to attend an interview session and present a resume. English and/or math skills may also be tested. Applicants   who present a combination of partial post­secondary education and relevant work experience will be considered as well.  With two intakes during the fall and winter semesters, the program may appeal to a large range of people who are   interested in obtaining the essential skills and knowledge in forensic accounting fraud investigation techniques that are  needed in order to have a successful career in this exciting new field. The Financial Fraud Investigation undertaking is  especially   focused   on   preparing   students   to   find   entry­level   positions   in   the   fields   of   forensic   accounting   and   audit   investigations   within   the   public   or   private   sections.   This   is   achieved   in   a   number   of   ways.   First   and   foremost,   professionals who have first­hand experience in the field teach courses within the program. Therefore, students also   benefit from personal anecdotes and their professors’ experience. In addition,  Financial Fraud Investigation  employs  learning situations that involve up­to­date technologies, case studies and simulations. These learning techniques are   applied   in   areas  of   fraud   and   economic   loss  quantification   such   as:   investigating   and   analyzing   financial   evidence,   testifying   as   a   witness,   becoming   involved   in   criminal   investigations,   uncovering   financial   evidence   in   employee   or   insurance fraud cases, and investigation in the rapidly evolving area of computer fraud. In addition, the program content   prepares students for the Certified Fraud Examiner examination. Successful analysis and findings reported by practicing professionals may mean the difference between perpetrators   avoiding detection of their illegal activities or being brought to justice. In most cases, success is directly and primarily   dependent upon the knowledge, skills and abilities of the professionals performing the work. Consequently, the demand   for entry­level professionals with formal education in fraud and forensic accounting has grown. Job titles such as forensic   accounting/   litigation   consultants,   tax   auditors,   gaming   investigators,   insurance   investigators,   bank  investigators   and  internal auditors are all part of the Financial Fraud Investigation sector. This relatively new field had gained popularity  with the increase of financial crime such as credit card and insurance scams, compromising of bank cards, gaming   scams and more. In addition, the advancement in technology has seen financial crime evolve rapidly, which results in  new risks that need to be addressed.
