This past Monday, I was a guest lecturer at Ball State’s Graduate Accounting Capstone ACC695 class. The invitation to speak came from Dr. Mark Myring, Chairman of Ball State’s Accounting Department.
The two-hour presentation concerned a fraud case study and psychological profile of the fraudster. The embezzlement case involved the largest (at that time) embezzlement discovered by the Indiana State Board of Accounts. The psychological profile was taken from Dr. Robert Hare’s landmark research about psychopaths.
