Description

Advertisement

Fraud is a growing problem in the financial services and banking sector. It can be extremely complex and hard to detect something which criminals take full advantage of. This innovative programme is designed for professionals currently working in a fraud and financial crime environment in the police, public or private sectors.

You study topics such as company structures, money laundering, organised crime in the UK, research methods for fraud, and terrorism and terrorist finance.

What you study
The programme is in three Stages - certificate, diploma and MA - offering participants the flexibility of being able to graduate with a postgraduate certificate, diploma or master's award. Stage 1 has two routes, tailored either for the police or for civilian investigators.
The police certificate incorporates the National Fraud Training course and is gained following a project, while the civilian certificate includes three one-week residential modules, delivered by Teesside Business School.
The second and third Stages follow a common route over two years, both delivered by Teesside Business School.
Modules include The Law and Practice of Investigations, Current Issues in Fraud and Financial Crime, Money Laundering, Forensic Accounting and Organised Crime. Stages 1 and 2 include a significant practitioner involvement in delivery.
