The origins of the accounting profession are rooted deep into history. The basic concepts of accounting were changing as years and centuries passed by. Nonetheless, a concept exists which did not experience major modifications over time -- fraud. Fraud existed centuries ago, as well as it exists today, and unfortunately, may exist years from now. However, in recent years forensic accounting has been expanding in order to change this pattern. This discipline created a new branch in the accounting profession, generating a growing demand for forensic accountants. Forensic accounting is currently taught in many American universities; however, Pace University is not one of them. Enrollment in a forensic accounting course can show to students a different side of such a renowned discipline as accounting. This thesis will attempt to persuade the reader of the importance of offering a forensic accouting course at Pace University as well as propose some topics to be covered in such course.
