“I found the courses to be very relevant to work in the field..; When I started the program, I did not work in forensic accounting. I obtained employment in this field in just 3 month before completion of the program. When I received my first file to work on, I felt like I was just handed a group assignment in Loss Quantification to complete.” Beata Laskowska, CPA, CGA, DIFA, CFF DIFA Graduate
