As the Accounting Research Institute (ARI HICoE) embarks on its niche research area of Financial Criminology, one of our very important aspirations is to increase awareness and competency of those involved with the investigation of financial fraud cases.
In investigating financial fraud cases, investigators must be at ease with the financial numbers. More importantly, they must acquire the skills and competency of how to interpret financial numbers; understanding "financial number game" and to know how the game is played. Today, ARI training team met up with some officers from the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) to discuss possible financial criminology on-the-job training program that could be offered to RMP investigation officers. Such university-RMP collaboration should be encouraged.
