Course Overview

In recent times the spotlight has been firmly fixed on fraud and economic crime. It is viewed as a niche area which for all intent and purpose provides perpetrators with lesser risk for more reward as it is generally viewed as a move away from traditional everyday commission of ordinary crime. It is often said that the Irish approach to such offending has been lethargic.

The purpose of this online diploma in Fraud and Economic Crime is to provide its participants with a knowledge and understanding of the topic, where consideration will be given to the origin of fraud and economic crime with an analysis of the circumstances in present day Ireland. On conclusion of this programme, participants will possess an understanding and an ability to identify, investigate and reduce the risk of Fraud and Economic Crime in their respective roles.
