case studies in 8 reviews

case studies made the course interesting and relevant too.

Very experienced tutors and real case studies.

Further the syllabus needs to be widened to touch upon case studies or examples across the world and not restrict to USA Pretty good but not reach enough.

There should be a capstone project or case studies to check if the skills learnt are properly implemented.

I feel that the course could benefit from adding case studies for the student to solve or providing concrete examples which the student can solve like detection of duplicate invoices or identification of improper journal entries among a list of journal entries.

Case studies was relevant.

My only recommendation is; would it be possible to include some practical case studies for course participants.Thanks for the great work Very interesting content that introduces many common fraud schemes and warning signs that may help prevent or detect the fraudulent act.
