Abstract: Economic Crime; its breadth and sophistication have implications for us all. There are, in my estimation, in excess of 15,000 professionals in Canada alone engaged in the prevention, detection, enforcement and prosecution of acts of economic crime; yet there is not enough going on in the Academy to bring together all the disciplines (capital markets, technology, human resources, accounting, finance and law) in a suit of programming and research to fully prepare graduates for this pervasive field.

Keywords: Ontario Securities Commission; economic crime prevention; economic crime detection; certified fraud examiners; capital markets; deviant behaviour; information technology; ICT; communications technology; social media networks; product engineering; surveillance; Canada; human resources; finance; accountancy; law; business education; universities; higher education; business governance; business ethics.
