    Careers for Forensic Accounting Graduates 

    Earning a Master's in Forensic Accounting online will make you qualified for various new career opportunities in a growing industry. Employment of accountants and auditors is projected to grow 11 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. The vast number of financial violations in recent years have resulted in new legislation and professional auditing standards that require the expertise of forensic accountants to protect the integrity of the financial system both in the public and private sectors. Stricter laws and regulations in the financial sector will likely raise the demand for graduates of a forensic accounting master's program as organizations seek to comply with new standards. Additionally, the “CSI effect” has led to an increased reliance on expert witnesses such as forensic accountants whereas in the past, judges and juries were more willing to accept less forensic proof. Our online master's in forensic accounting is designed to prepare you to meet this growing demand.
