Ethics and Fraud

Ethics and Fraud

Identifying fraudulent scenarios and learning how to prevent them.

Fraud is a deceptive act by one person, group, or organization that causes another to part with something of value or to surrender a legal right. Fraud includes occupational fraud (employee misuse of company resources), accounting fraud and marketing fraud.

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program at UCCS College of Business brings speakers and events to UCCS to highlight fraud prevention and its impact of it on the community. Fraud is a prominent business ethical issue. Business scandals have affected multiple stakeholders costing companies millions of dollars. The DFEI Collegiate Program at UCCS COB presents the dangers posed by fraud, creates experiences and informs students, faculty, staff, and community members so they can identify fraudulent scenarios and make principle-based ethical decisions when faced with them.
