According the latest PwC Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey, 47 per cent of companies have experienced a fraud in the past 24 months, with a total reported loss of US $42 billion. Kristin Rivera, PwC Global Forensics Leader, has this to say, "when it comes to preventing and tackling fraud, our research shows that a dollar invested now is worth twice as much when fraud?".

With the onset of the global recession and increasing levels of Covid-19-related fraud, now is not the time to cut corners in your fraud risk management approach. The ICA Advanced Certificate in Managing Fraud is designed to give you actionable and practical knowledge so that you can implement key fraud management strategies in your firm. You will get to grips with global anti-fraud frameworks, the mind and motivations of a fraudster, as well as gain an understanding of what the future holds in this space. 

This course is awarded in association with Alliance Manchester Business School, the University of Manchester.
