The Executive Master of Accounting with a concentration in Forensic Accounting program has been offered by the AACSB-accredited College of Business at Florida Atlantic University since Fall 2003, and was the first program of its kind in the United States.
The program is open to students from all educational backgrounds that have at least a bachelor’s degree. Students without an accounting degree may be required to take foundation courses. Forensic students take the common core courses that all regular masters in accounting students take, plus two courses in fraud examination, a legal course, a tax fraud course, and a business valuation course.
The School of Accounting Executive Programs takes pride in engaging highly qualified professors and professionals to teach our courses (e.g., one of our valuation instructors recently served as the chairperson of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ committee on valuation).
Students enrolled in the program are required to maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA to successfully graduate.
