  • Understanding Product Counterfeiting Online Course

    Location:

    Online

    Description:

    This graduate course explores the crime of product counterfeiting through a mix of theoretical perspectives from criminology, victimology, and organizational behavior. Product counterfeiting is a global crime that impacts almost every aspect of society. The nature of product counterfeiting reflects a toxic mix of mercenary motivations and cognitive dissonance as individuals within organizations, both legal and illegal, capitalize upon criminal opportunities that are solely focused upon the maximization of illicit gains. Through an analysis of theory, empirical studies, and case histories this course helps students gain a comprehensive understanding of product counterfeiting, and promotes the scientific application of theory and research as a means of developing effective crime prevention solutions.
