Anderson Schools Announces Financial Investigations Certificate Program

July 31, 2003

The Financial Investigations Certificate Program will be offered by the Management Development Center at UNM's Anderson Schools of Management. This 12-week course is designed for anyone interested in learning more about conducting effective and thorough financial investigations. Because most of the crimes committed in America are motivated by money, this course is a must for law enforcement investigators, as well as prosecutors, accountants and financial analysts.

Participants will be introduced to current techniques and perspectives dominant in the field of financial investigations. Including evidence, sources of information, banking and financial record keeping, methods of tracing funds, interviewing and investigative techniques, and money laundering. Primary emphasis will be placed on the principles and applications of financial investigative techniques.

New Mexico State certified public accountants and certified police officers are eligible to earn up to 36 hours of continuing education credit for completing this program.

The Financial Investigations Certificate Program will be held on Thursday evenings, September 4th through November 20th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the State Bar of New Mexico conveniently located in the Journal Center. The registration fee of $745 includes all books and course materials. This noncredit certificate program provides the opportunity for personal and professional development without being formally admitted or enrolled in the University.
