Davenport U Offers Degree in Accounting Fraud Detection

Michigan's Davenport University will introduce a bachelor's degree program in accounting fraud investigation this fall at the university's Midland, MI, campus. The program is designed to provide students a combination of technical skills in accounting, computer security, and legal investigation that are required in fraud examination.

Sheryl Beyer, vice president for campus operations, said students who major in the program will learn how to detect and prevent fraud in both small and large corporate environments. The degree "takes the accounting field well beyond just the day to day accounting function," Beyer told the Midland Daily News.

The program can be incorporated by students who have already started their accounting degree, she noted. "We may have students that have started on the accounting track and now that this is an opportunity, (they may) decide that they want to add that extra component and those extra skills which will make them even more marketable," Beyer said.
