The Growing Field of Forensic Accounting
Forensic accounting is rated as one of the fastest growing niche services in accounting.
Forensic accountants investigate fraud and other improper activities. They provide litigation support in matters ranging from security law violations and business sale transactions to probate and domestic relations.
Forensic accountants interact with a variety of professionals, including investigators, attorneys, federal and state prosecutors, agents of the FBI and the IRS.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics has forecasted an 18 percent growth in the employment of accountants and auditors between 2006-2016. In addition, the Bureau anticipates that due to the increased focus on and the number of financial crimes being committed, the demand for forensic accountants will increase.
Beginning in Fall 2011, Webster University's George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology will offer a Master of Science (MS) in Forensic Accounting that combines accounting with investigation, valuation and law.
The forensic accounting program offers a "deep immersion" that integrates real-life experiences in the field.
