Get A Master's In Accounting And Financial Forensics

Accounting and financial forensics is a specialized field of accounting born out of the need to look beyond general accounting functions to identify concerns in the financial industry, including financial discrepancies, fraud, risk assessment, cybercrime, compliance concerns, and other issues related to complex financial transactions.

The Accounting and Financial Forensics program at the Florida Institute of Technology gives graduates advanced investigation, critical thinking, and financial auditing expertise to perform work such as financial and tax accounting research, information systems and internal auditing, fraud examination, information security and data intelligence, and financial management and portfolio analyses. Accounting and financial forensics experts can act as financial fraud prevention advisors and must be able to put complex financial information in simple terms for others—such as lawyers, CEOs, members of a jury, or other investigators—to understand.
