Department of Internal Audit and Compliance

What qualifications are required to become an internal auditor?

Much like the diverse functional environments they audit, internal auditors may possess a broad range of educational backgrounds.  However, most people that gravitate to internal auditing possess finance, accounting, and information systems degrees – persons that have deep operations-based education are also considered good auditors.   Previous work experience as an internal auditor, independent accountant, or higher education or healthcare experience is helpful.  Professional auditing certifications and operations and industry credentialing demonstrate a strong working knowledge of skill-sets to our client base.
