    Revision and Relaunch of MS in Accounting

    Get PDF
    The School of Business Administration and Economics (“SOBAE”) proposes revising and relaunching the MS in Accounting program (“MSA”) and offering it in place of the current MS in Forensic Accounting program. The MSA has been dormant for several years while SOBAE focused its efforts on its MS in Forensic Accounting program. However, a revised MSA will incorporate the best features of both programs. It will be more marketable, appealing to a broader group of students seeking an advanced degree in accounting to fulfill the 150-credit hour education requirement for CPA licensure in New York State. It will be comprised of six accounting courses, rather than the current four, making it a more competitive program. It will also incorporate significant coursework in forensic accounting, which remains a growing area of professional practice, making it distinctive from other regional programs and positioning Brockport to offer, in the near future, a Certificate in Forensic Accounting

    Fraud and the Evolution of Forensic Accounting Education

    Get PDF
    Forensic accounting, the use of accounting practices in court, developed as a field separate from traditional accounting or auditing throughout the 1900’s. As fraud changed the landscape of auditing practice, forensic accounting slowly began to take shape as the accountant’s answer to fraud. After a series of major frauds at the beginning of the 21st century, forensic accounting became one of the most demanded fields of accounting. The profession, though, was still relatively in its infancy: forensic accountants were predominantly untrained aside from firsthand experience. Since the early 2000’s, schools have begun rapidly implementing forensic accounting programs to meet the increasing demand for forensic accountants. As the demand continues to increase, however, education offerings will be needed

    Forensic accounting has been a fast-growing niche area within the accounting field for many years. While there has been dramatic growth in the number of courses and degrees in forensic accounting offered by universities, certain relevant topics receive little coverage, such as computer forensics. The purpose of this paper is to examine the views of accounting academics and practitioners pertaining to integrating computer forensics in the accounting curriculum, as well as to determine which forensic accounting certifications the respondents hold. Differences in opinions between the two groups are discussed, along with recommendations on how to improve the forensic accounting curriculum pertaining to computer forensics education

    Get PDF
    Purpose:  The study shows how several perceptionistic, environmental, and economic aspects can be systematically assessed in advance of investment decisions to launch a proposed Master's program in Forensic Accounting.   Theoretical framework:  Since the final decade of the twentieth century there has been increasing global interest in adopting and applying forensic accounting, fraud detection methods, and financial fraud examination . However,  there are no specialized postgraduate programs in this field at either the local (Saudi) or regional (Middle Eastern) level,  despite its importance to meeting the needs of accountancy and judicial employers.   Design/methodology/approach:   An inductive and analytical approach evaluates the proposed program using a three-stage model that can be adopted by any higher education institution (HEIs) wishing to develop an educational program.   Findings:  The results show that the vast majority of the program's beneficiaries support its implementation due to its novelty both locally internationally. The program gives the University of Tabuk, its initiator, a sustainable competitive advantage over other local and regional universities through supplying the labor market with graduates qualified in financial criminal investigation. Finally, the financial analysis indicates that the program will be strong financially and have a high level of operational efficiency and expected demand.   Research, Practical & Social implications: The findings are beneficial for HEIs seeking to achieve a competitive advantage over their rivals by offering attractive academic programs that meet the demands of the labor market.   Originality/value:  The study is the first that it uses a three-stage assessment model to show how several perceptionistic, strategic, and economic aspects can be systematically assessed in advance of investment decisions related to launching new academic programs in HEIs
