Dr. David O’Bryan, a professor in the Department of Accounting and Computer Information Systems, has been published in Fraud Magazine for his work on an article examining the issue of fraud in intercollegiate athletics.
O’Bryan and his co-author, Dr. Herbert Snyder of North Dakota State University in Fargo, analyzed the ticket scandal that came to light last year at the University of Kansas. The article, which is available on the publication’s website, identifies how better controls and practices could have curbed the fraud at KU.
“We hope our recommendations can help prevent future occurrences of fraud in intercollegiate athletics,” O’Bryan said. “It’s an honor to have been published by this leading anti-fraud organization.”
