NU Students Partner With IRS To Investigate Fictional Fraud Cases

In Announcements, by , on November 17th, 2014

The “Adrian Jr.” workshop set up its interactive fraud investigation experience on Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014, in Dunleavy Hall.

The 2.5-hour event – named after the 2002 pilot held at Michigan’s Adrian College – targets accounting, business and criminal justice majors who are interested in forensic accounting, a growing field of interest amongst students.

Approximately 31 Niagara University students attended the event, along with five faculty members.

Students were given an informative PowerPoint presentation on how to solve cases by an experienced IRS agent. After the presentation, students were separated into three groups, accompanied by IRS agents, in which they were to solve a real-life simulated fraud case.
