Fraud Detection with Audit Data Analytics

​​Project Summary:

This GLE project focused on how an accounting profession can leverage data analytics skills to provide suggestions to the organization’s operations and to highlight any potential fraud. Given the unstructured nature of the project, student groups (with students from both National Chung Cheng University and DePaul University) collaborated to plan and execute the analyses, which reflected the different risk and analysis preferences through the cultural and educational backgrounds. More importantly, student groups discussed and determined the key findings and their major recommendations/implications based on different perspectives from their prior training and experience. ​ 

​​​Project Length:

  • ​7 Weeks 

Technology Tools Used:

  • Zoom

  • Google Doc

  • Flipgrid

  • Line

  • WhatsApp

​Interaction Mode:

  • Synchronous

  • Asynchronous

​Learning Outcomes: 

  • Students communicated findings effectively with group members with different cultural and educational backgrounds.

  • Students considered alternative perspectives when interpreting findings, given different considerations highlighted in different regions and local institutional contexts​.

Faculty Feedback:

"The dynamics of a global team and all the cultural, communicational, and technological differences are always challenging to manage. However, these are the factors that help us bring new perspectives to the final output.​​"
