The graduate degree in Forensic Accounting offered by the School of Business of the State University of New York at Old Westbury has been ranked 3rd in the nation among the “Best Master’s Degrees in Forensic Accounting” as ranked by
SUNY Old Westbury placed behind West Virginia University and Florida International University in the rankings, which were compiled based on key factors related to academics, affordability, reputation, and program availability.
“This recognition only confirms what we already knew – that the quality of our Forensic Accounting program is high and that it should be the program-of-choice for accountants throughout our region,” said Dr. Shalei Simms, dean of the SUNY Old Westbury School of Business.
The M.S. in Forensic Accounting at SUNY Old Westbury is the only graduate degree in this specific field to be offered on Long Island. The 30-credit program is for students seeking a career in this fast-growing arena as a forensic accountant or fraud examiner.
Offered over a three-semester arc in one calendar year, the program enables students to meet the 150-credit hour requirement to qualify for CPA licensure in New York State while providing a foundation for the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) exam.
Students in the M.S. program also have the opportunity to gain real-world experience through the campus’ Justice for Fraud Victims Project, which works to assist victims of suspected financial fraud in cases where forensic investigative services are limited or too costly.
