The course provided an excellent introduction to a field of study with wide application in the business world.
Useful concepts were introduced, such as the fraud triangle, behavioural red flags, and fraud models. Data and text analysis was an interesting topic.
The material was presented clearly, though it required close attention to respond correctly to the questions to be answered for each module.
One gripe, I paid online for the course booklet on 13 March 2016 , but 4 months after the payment date I have still not received it!
The course syllabus is good but it lacks some very important aspects of managing fraud such prevention and internal control measures to be adopted by a company or organization. There must be strategies of preventing fraud in the form of rules and procedures regulating the integrity of financial and accounting information, promote accountability, transparency and reduce risk and opportunity.
Informative and very interesting introduction to forensic accounting and fraud examination. Lecturers were clear, spoke at a good pace, and not boring. The course made me want to read up external material and find out more.
The quizzes on the other hand were not great. Poor English, some questions were vague, did not make sense, or contained matters not covered in lectures.
