About the course

The role of the forensic accountant will seem familiar to finance professionals, but it demands skills way beyond technical finance skills. Forensic accountants' day to day work involves fraud investigations, damages assessments, valuations of businesses or curious entities and frequently involves legal proceedings. The forensic accountant could spend a week as the expert witness in a matrimonial dispute involving millions of pounds of marital assets, before spending the next valuing a football club.

This course allows you to work through activities, share your learning with peers, and get the knowledge and skills that will enable you to operate in the world of the forensic accountant. You’ll be able to identify misconduct and fraud as well as understand how to conduct fraud investigations and non-fraud work.
