    What is Financial Accounting Fraud Risk?

      Financial Accounting Fraud Risk is a foundational-level course that introduces learners to the methods a client may use to manipulate their financial statements and the steps a lender can take to detect and respond to potential fraud.

      The course explains commonly employed fraudulent accounting practices, such as inappropriate revenue and expense recognition methods, and introduces basic techniques for adjusting the balance sheet and income statement to more accurately reflect the company’s financial condition.

      Real-world examples of companies that have been prosecuted for financial accounting fraud are woven throughout. Participants also have an opportunity to review the financial statements of a fictitious company to detect and calculate the impact of incorrect accounting treatments.
