Internal Auditing Excellence Degree Options and Courses

This program offers a lot of flexibility although the most traditional path is an MS in Accounting with an internal audit concentration. However, the program does accept all other Masters degrees.

Students from Arts and Humanities, Engineering and Computer Science, General Studies, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Behavioral and Brain Science who have a strong desire to learn internal audit’s analytic skills and combine that with expertise from the program they are working on are well-suited for a variety of positions in large organizations. These students have a strong appeal to the business community and can make an immediate contribution to the internal audit groups of large companies, non profits, and government agencies. This program allows the flexibility to meet the individual academic requirements of the students. Students from theses areas should speak with an advisor if they wish to complete the IAEP program.
