Finding the Way Back: Impacts of White Collar Crime

Fraudulent scandals in previously well respected companies such as Enron, WorldCom, AIG, Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Satyam Computer Services have shaken the nation's faith in the business community.

It is reported that the US government loses between $300 and $660 billion per year to white collar crime schemes, investigations and prosecution. Companies, investors, taxpayers and society in general feel the consequences of these violations. We invite you to an intriguing session on white collar crime and corporate governance in which you will have the opportunity to hear from two former business executives who committed white collar crimes in addition to leading experts in the financial sector and forensic accounting.

This panel discussion will be held Thursday, March 17, from 4:15-6:15 pm in the Pugh AUditorium, Benson Student Center. Panelists: (click on the names for photos and bios)
