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.

With the growing complexity of the business environment and the rising number of business related investigations, forensic accounting professionals are increasingly asked to assist in the investigation of financial and business related issues.

Northumbria’s Forensic Accounting MSc is for graduates seeking to enhance their financial investigation knowledge and skills. It aims to enable you to gain the technical and intellectual skills which will equip you to take full advantage of career opportunities as they arise.

Learning experience

You will be trained to look beyond the numbers and deal with the business realities of situations. The ability to analyse, interpret, summarise and present complex financial and business related issues are prominent features of the course.

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.

Module Overview

AF7001 - Fraud Examination (Core, 20 Credits)
AF7002 - Fraudulent Statement and Forensic Data Analysis (Core, 20 Credits)

Learning environment

As a full-time student, you will be supported though an interactive approach to sessions that will draw upon the directed learning undertaken and your own experiences. Throughout, the emphasis will be on high levels of participation, both individually and within small groups or teams. You can therefore expect the reflective-practitioner approach to learning that will be embedded in all sessions and to engage with activities that will help you apply theory to ‘real-life’ situations.

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.

Give your career an edge

You will receive a wealth of employment support as part of your Masters study. Core to this is the two-part module Developing Global Management Competencies. This module seeks to prepare you to be highly employable, enabling you to demonstrate your ability to make an immediate impact on any organisation you join after graduation. You will also be supported by industry facing activity including short-term internships and placement opportunities where possible.

Your future

Successful completion of the course will enable you to differentiate yourself in a sector that has become increasingly competitive. You can expect to gain employment in many areas including, public practice or insurance companies, banks, police forces and government agencies.

Do you want to understand the role of Mexico in the cocaine trade, why a Dutch multinational dumps waste on an African country, or how young Dutch Muslims are recruited for fighting in Syria? Are you curious about phenomena such as Internet fraud, food criminality or mobile banditry? Old and new forms of global crime are rapidly expanding, as are the means to control it. The Netherlands serves both as a major crossroad in the illegal flow of goods, people and services and as a key host for international organisations such as Europol, Greenpeace and the International Criminal Court. Drug trafficking, human trafficking, international terrorism, corruption, environmental harm, financial and corporate crime and conflicts over natural resources all have global dimensions. Tackling these issues requires modern instruments that transcend national boundaries.

TRACKS 

You can choose from two distinctive tracks within the Global Criminology programme. Find out more about the following tracks:

  • Global Crime
  • Crime, Punishment and Security 

There is a growing demand for qualified researchers, legal practitioners and policy makers who can address these and comparable issues. Are you a multidisciplinary expert or criminologist who wants to make a significant contribution to the field? Are you someone who wants to work in the field of law and social reform – or any sector dealing with growing forms of local and global crime control? Do you want to be part of a Master’s programme with students from different continents? Then the MA in Global Criminology at Utrecht University is the right choice for you!

The MA in Global Criminology is a one-year Master’s programme that equips students with the knowledge, skills, and understanding required to work with local and global crime issues, crime policies and crime control strategies.

The programme offers a multidisciplinary, critical and comparative perspective in criminology, open for students with a BA degree in law, criminology, social sciences, or any other related social discipline such as economy, history or media studies, to name a few. 

DEVELOPING ESSENTIAL SKILLS

During this programme, you’ll study key issues such as organised and corporate crime, prison systems, security policies or the relation between ethnicity and crime. You will also develop essential skills that will benefit you in both your professional and personal life. You will be able, among other things, to:

  • Develop good insight into the causes and consequences of local and global crime.
  • Analyse the behaviour of offenders from different disciplines and perspectives.
  • Critically assess and evaluate criminal policies and the criminal justice system;
  • Understand the cultural aspects of criminal phenomena;
  • Conduct independent criminological research using qualitative research methods and connect the results with criminological theories.
  • Present research results to an audience of both specialists and non-specialists.

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)

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
