Program Information

School:British Columbia Institute of Technology
Faculty:School of Computing and Academic Studies
Degree:Certificate; Online
Field of Study:Securities Services Administration/Management
Description:This 27-credit Advanced Specialty Certificate has been designed to meet changes that have occurred in the securities markets and in their economic, legal, and political environment following the fiascos of Enron, WorldCom, and others. These financial disasters have not only caused major losses to investors, but have also resulted in decreased confidence in market mechanisms and controls. In the area of securities fraud, it is often private-sector individuals who are best positioned to provide early warning of potentially fraudulent practices. Individuals in these positions include financial analysts, business valuators, financial planners, insolvency and restructuring professionals, underwriters, professional accountants, internal auditors, and others whose profession involves the analysis and assessment of a company's operating and financial situation. It is unfortunate but true that, in many major financial fraud cases, the warning signs of fraud are present for all to see, but they are unnoticed or overlooked by the very analysts whose job it is to advise others about just such indicators. The proposed certificate program will close this knowledge/skills gap.
