M.S. Forensic Accounting
Financial crises, legislation requiring greater transparency in financial reporting and other industry changes mean forensic accounting career opportunities continue to grow, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which puts employment growth for accountants and auditors at 13 percent through 2022.
The Masters of Science in forensic accounting degree is a practitioner-based program that combines accounting with investigation, valuation and law while also providing insight into how forensic accounting findings are used in court cases to prosecute white-collar criminals.
As the only comprehensive graduate degree in forensic accounting program in the area, Webster’s faculty has worked hard to continually update and adapt the program to meet the demands of this growing profession.
As a result, Webster University graduates have found employment at accounting firms, private industry and governmental agencies such as Wells Fargo, Brown Smith Wallace, the FBI, FDIC and US Postal Service.
