Forensic Accounting and Financial Criminology Association
The Protem Committee and graduates of our Master in Forensic Accounting and Financial Criminology Program met up today to discuss the formation of the Forensic Accounting and Financial Criminology Association and the registration of the association with the Registrar of Societies (ROS). Members of the association will comprise graduates of the program whose number is now reaching two hundred. The Master program was first introduced in July 2006 and the first graduate cohort was produced in August 2008. In addition to normal membership, the association will also admit students and practioners as associate members. Currently, the top three protem committee members comprise President, Mohd Rashid Tan Sri Musa; Haswadi (Deputy President) and Hesri Faizal (Secretary). The formation of the association will path the way towards developing more qualified professionals in the area of forensic accounting and financial criminology. As a HICoE driving a niche research area of Islamic Financial Criminology, the formation of this new association will certainly adds value to the Accounting Research Institute (ARI)and the Faculty of Accountancy, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). More collaborative works in the area of research, training program and publications will be initiated with the upcoming association.
