This subject introduces students to methods of forensic accounting and asset recovery as they are applied during financial investigations. Students will develop knowledge of basic accounting concepts and principles; and explore the role of business, both as victims of financial crime, as well as vehicles by which financial crimes are committed. In considering financial systems and businesses as both a victim and vehicle, students will learn what forensic accounting can offer a financial crime investigation and the circumstances under which they should be engaged. Students will also gain experience analysing financial crime case data and producing forensic financial crime reports.
