Business & Management Cluster



The programme aims at producing graduates with a broad-based introduction to the nature and purpose of forensic accounting.  Graduates are exposed to courses well beyond a 'legal' focus and provide an opportunity to study forensic accounting tools, models, techniques, knowledge and comprehensive skills in investigation and collection of data. Graduates are also exposed to the skills necessary not only to identify poor management but also unethical and fraudulent activities.  Graduates are expected to acquire independent accounting expert witness skills and techniques including preparation for court appearance and cross examinations.
