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.
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.
