The Adviser: Fraud Detective

The Adviser is a monthly activity where students take on the role of an accounting adviser. Each month, your students will accept a challenge from a local business who needs accounting help. Through a variety of individual and team exercises, your students will learn and incorporate both technical accounting concepts and soft skills needed to be successful.

Your students will tackle this month’s assignment by working with several local companies who all recently discovered fraudulent activity that could have been avoided with internal controls in place. It will be their job to dissect what went wrong in each situation and provide solutions to help each company move forward. This activity will allow your students to explore the importance of incorporating internal controls for a business.

The downloadable activity includes a student worksheet and a teacher answer key (must log in to access).
