Accounting Track

The accounting track is designed to prepare students to synthesize the accounting, auditing, computer, and investigative skills necessary to investigate and analyze financial evidence; to interpret and summarize their findings; and to communicate those findings in a courtroom setting. The corporate climate and the implementation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act have led to a need for forensic accountants in public practice, corporations, government agencies, and other organizations to aid in fraud investigation and in fraud prevention. Graduates of this track will be prepared for these positions.
