Financial Crime Detection

Global Financial Crime Detection
Behind nearly every international crime involving money lies a money laundering scheme. In this course we will look at how corrupt dictators, terrorists, drug traffickers, sanctions evaders, and North Korean cyber hackers, among others, hide and launder their ill-gotten gains. We will explore traditional money laundering techniques, trade-based laundering techniques, black market peso exchange, Chinese mirror trades, the use of virtual assets, shell companies, etc. Throughout the semester we will also consider red flag indicators of suspicious activity.
This course is designed for students who hope to go into professions where they can use financial crime detection skills (law, banking, crypto compliance, research think tanks, journalism, and security/intelligence).
