The only University that appears to provide a course in this area is Glasgow Caledonian Universitya nd this is a part time two year course. I stand to be corrected on that point. The business schools also appear to be lacking in any appraoch to this area. As I understand the Institute of Internal Auditors has three stages of qulaification and they cover the following topics: Corporate Governance and Risk Management Internal Auditing – Tools and Techniques Effective Delivery of an Audit Communication and Client-Auditor Relations Organisation and Management - concepts and practices Accounting and Financial Systems Internal Auditing Business Information Systems Auditing Corporate Governance and Risk Management Effective Delivery of an Audit Communications and Client-Auditor Relations
Strategic Management Financial Management Risk Assurance and Audit Management Advanced Internal Auditing Case Study Advanced Business Communication.
From the above ot is hard to see how any form of generic degree course can establish a student on a path for this qualification, yet with Corporate Governance and SOX high on agendas today the internal audit comliance team are a vital part of a business.
It would be appreciated if people or indeed Internal Auditors could give their views in training and how they see this qualification as being vital. Thanks
