The M.S. in Economic Crime Forensics is designed to address the need for students skilled in detection, prevention, and litigation support of economic crime. The curriculum combines theory with practice through evaluation of economic crime cases. Students assess real-world situations, estimate risk mitigation, and prepare evidence to support causation. Each course is designed to formulate the relevant theory and devise practical application of theory through evaluation of relevant case studies, evaluation and analysis of computer software products and data, and justification of research areas related to economic crime.
