About the programme
This programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage the totality of the financial crime spectrum, from the prophylactic aspect (prevention and detection) through to the reactive element (investigations).
It is taught by qualified anti-financial crime practitioners from the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre, all of whom have extensive experience of financial crime management.
The principles and concepts are grounded in good practice gained from real-life experience and research from across the globe, making this programme truly international in both scope and application.
