According to the US Department of Justice’s media brief in 2013, procurement fraud matters had a peak in fiscal year 2013. The department recovered $3.8 billion from false claims where more than $887 million of this amount was in settlements and judgments based on allegations of false claims and corruption involving government contracts. It is certain that these kind of fraudulent activities are not common but the cost is deadly. Therefore it is crucial to have a fraud detection mechanism in place.

Data Analytics, process of transforming input data into useful information through proper analytic tools, is relevant to all business professionals. This process enhances the decision makers’ ability to use data effectively, in order to better understand the cases that they are dealing with, and to provide better, consistent, and to the point decision models to solve a wide range of business problems.

Students will learn both theoretical and practical sides of analyzing large data sets.
