FGV’s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) is now accepting applications for two short courses as part of its Professional Master’s in Public Administration (MAP) program, on Data Analytics & Continuous Auditing and Public Sector Accounting & Financial Resilience. The courses will be held in late October, by Professor Miklos Vasarhelyi, of the Rutgers Business School in Newark, United States, and Ileana Steccolini, of Newcastle University London.

The course on Data Analytics & Continuous Auditing will explore the use of accounting information to identify failures in internal controls, and detect fraud in organizations in the public and private sectors. Cases involving Data Analytics & Continuous Auditing at corporations and state-owned enterprises will also be presented in the classes. This mini-course, given by Professor Miklos Vasarhelyi, will take place from October 24 to 27, from 6pm to 10pm.

The Public Sector Accounting & Financial Resilience course will be held from October 31 to November 1, from 8am to 5pm, led by Professor Ileana Steccolini. It will address recent trends and developments in theory and practice in accountancy and performance assessment in the public sector. The course will also look at the use of accounting information in public management, emphasizing the financial resilience of municipal governments affected by the international crisis that followed the American subprime debacle. Various cases involving local governments in Italy, England, Austria and France will be presented.
 
These courses are part of the extra activities of the AdCont and EMeCC Congress that EBAPE is hosting this year. They are free for FGV students, who should enroll using the “Aluno Online” system. Other people should enroll at the Academic Records Secretariat at FGV’s main office, at Praia de Botafogo, 190, third floor, in Rio de Janeiro, from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 7pm.
