Atlanta-based Porter Keadle Moore has made a contribution to the Center for Forensic Studies in Accounting at Georgia Southern University to the tune of $6,000.
This program does excellent work, which is particularly important in todays economy, said Phil Moore, PKMs managing partner. Its training a generation of students with critical, much-needed skills. This donation allows us to live out one of our core values at PKM of being philanthropic within our community, by giving back to a school and a program that has done much for our firm.
Jenna Green, an associate in PKMs systems group, earned her masters degree at Georgia Southern. She says her training is invaluable in helping companies protect themselves from fraud and comply with increasingly complex anti-fraud regulations.
Even if you dont work in forensic accounting, its something every accounting student should be aware of, Green said.
The center offers 10 courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. PKM regularly partners with Georgia Southern to present an annual Fraud and Forensic Accounting Education Conference. This years conference will be held June 2 to 4 in Savannah, Ga.
