Career Opportunities in Forensic Accounting

Forensic accounting is the fastest-growing niche market in the accounting profession.  Potential career opportunities are numerous, in both the private and government sectors.

A key emphasis of the MFA curriculum is practical application.  Instructors commonly relate course content to their real-world experiences, and problem-based assignments/projects allow students to operationalize abstract concepts.  Throughout the program, students are challenged to identify opportunities to leverage their newly-acquired knowledge and skills for career advancement. 

Several MFA graduates from past cohorts have been promoted within their existing organizations or have obtained positions with new employers.
