Course Outline

Most organisations have their fair share of fraud and corruption, and it affects all of us. As we know, what comes out in the press is the sharp tip of the iceberg. So, in these austere times, can we really accept to carry hidden costs and lose value through unethical behaviour perpetrated against us? At the School of Management we have decided to take a stand and teach what most business schools still do not teach... defence against the commercial dark side.

Properly combating fraud and corruption is still an elusive goal. Time and again we see people and apparently well-managed organisations subjected to major embarrassment, financial penalties or even bankruptcy as the result of inappropriate actions and failings by 'trusted' individuals. This course will help you to learn how to address the challenge; how you can ensure that you actively defend yourself and your organisation against the very real threats we would rather not see?

The aims and objectives of the course are to:

-Demystify fraud and corruption (what it is, who does it and why, what it costs us).
-Explore how to bridge the gap between anti-fraud and corruption and 'rhetoric' and the reality of the world we live in.
-Learn how to spot fraud, and develop your own fraud and corruption risk assessment which represents a true picture of what could be happening (in your organisation).
-Demonstrate in practical steps what you can do to pre-empt and prevent fraud, corruption and all forms of unethical business behaviour in your organisation.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA)

If you have any questions about this course, join us for a live online chat with academic tutors and admissions staff.

How will the course be taught?

This is a 12 week course delivered solely online using engaging audio-visual based teaching methods in addition to selected case studies. The course will be moderated by a leading practitioner on fraud and corruption, who will share their experiences and insights with the group. In addition to all of this, the course provides you with full access to the extensive library provision offered by the University of Leicester.

The course is assessed by a practice based assignment. In addition to the development of key skills and acquiring new knowledge, successfully completing the course will provide you with 15 Master's level credits of study and a Confirmation of Completion.

You will be taught by academics who are specialists (with professional bodies’ accreditation) and who have advanced degrees and extensive scholarly publications in fraud, anti-money laundering, financial crimes and in legal procedures and evidence.

At Northumbria, we consider assessment to be a learning experience in itself. Assessments are designed not just to test your learning and skills development, but to provide more opportunities for the achievement of your learning goals through a varied range of assessment approaches that are primarily driven by individual assignments, but also include personal development planning, group and peer assessments, portfolios and reflective reports.

Research rich learning

Our academics undertake practice relevant research in a range of applied subject areas, enabling us to interpret developments in what is a very fast changing subject field. You are encouraged to undertake enquiry based learning, where you will be co-creators of your own knowledge and learning and also develop research, enquiry and team working skills.

Why take this course?

This course provides you with a unique, flexible approach to studying which allows you to not only choose the units and subject areas you study, but to determine the award you exit with through your choice. Through more than 15 units, this framework allows you to shape your studies to your own interests, developing your knowledge and understanding through your choice of units and dissertation topic.

The subject areas available to study are:

Criminology
Criminal Justice
Security Management
Counter Fraud and Counter Corruption
Cybercrime (Campus-based only)
Criminal Psychology
Crime Science
International Justice (Distance learning only)
Policing and Leadership (Distance learning only)
Intelligence (in combination only)

What will I experience?

On this course you can:

specialise in units leading to an exit award in one of the main subject areas (route A) - e.g. MSc Criminal Psychology
follow a combined route to an exit award in two of the subject areas (route B) - e.g. MSc Crime Science and Cybercrime
study as a campus-based or distance-learning student, tailoring our delivery to suit your needs

Module Details

You will study for this course by following one of the two available routes, depending on whether you want to study, and be recognised for, one or two subject areas.

Whichever route you choose, you will also study the Research Methods and Research Ethics unit. This unit will enable you to both develop and add to your research skills, through the use of specialist research workshops, and help prepare you for completing your dissertation.

Route A

Route A allows you to focus on one subject area from the list above, studying a core unit and specialist option relevant to that subject area. Route A also gives you the option to study a unit from outside that subject area, should you want to broaden you knowledge even further. For example, if you are interested in Criminal Psychology, but want to take one of the units specific to Criminal Justice, this framework will allow you to do so.

Route B

Route B allows you to combine two of the subject areas in your studies, and this will be reflected in the degree title awarded. For example, if you have an interest in Crime Science but also in Cybercrime, you can study both subjects and exit with an MSc in Crime Science and Cybercrime.

Programme Assessment

Assessment is based upon a range of written assignments including essays, case study, a literature review and research proposal focused on your chosen project. You will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation. For each assignment full academic support is provided by an academic subject expert and you will be provided with academic supervisor once you have identified your dissertation subject area.

Student Destinations

Given the broad range of issues considered and the skills acquired throughout the degree programme, you will be well equipped to embark upon a diverse range of career choices. Over the years our graduates have found employment in areas including policing (both as officers and as civilian staff), crime analysis, probation, the courts and prison service, local authorities, academia and research, charities and private industry to name just a few.
