Months of entry
The Fraud Investigation Management MSc course was developed in association with professionals leading the way in economic crime and fraud investigation in the UK and worldwide.
If you are involved in fraud investigation or would like to be, this course can help you develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of current issues in fraud investigation, that you will need to better plan and deal with the potential fraud risk in your organisation. The course will focus students on the associated policy and procedures needed to be able to take a fraud case from inception right the way through to prosecution.
The UK has long been one of a small number of global leaders in the field of investigations, with UK Police officers currently involved in cases of national and international importance overseas. UK Police officers have developed a globally acknowledged reputation for professionalism and efficiency. It is this experience and practice which underpins the Coventry University Masters degree (MSc) in Fraud Investigation Management.
The Forensic Investigation group maintain close links with fraud investigation departments within financial institutions. Fraud investigation is a growing area and successful Coventry University graduates should be well placed to capitalise on this shift in the employment market.
The key driver for developing this course was the 2006 Fraud Review by Lord Goldsmith, which stated that a more strategic approach to the investigation of fraud by financial institutions and the Police was needed. Ultimately, graduates from the MSc in Fraud Investigation Management could be able to contribute to the professionalisation agenda for the role of fraud investigator and to effectively manage the fraud investigation function for their organisations.
