Internal Audit Program
Students from all business disciplines who have a consulting mindset may be surprised to learn that internal audit is a career worth considering. If you want to work with one company across all departments to solve their biggest challenges, you can get that exposure when working as an internal auditor.
The Internal Audit Program offers coursework and experiences to prepare students for this potential path. Students in the program feel that the highlight of their experience is completing a real audit/consulting project of a local business as part of ACCT 408. In addition, the program focuses students on other coursework which provides high-impact experiences case study competitions, mentoring opportunities with professionals, trips, and invitations to attend program-only networking events. Scholarships are also available to Internal Audit Program students.
Students must apply and be accepted to program to begin the coursework. Depending on your undergraduate major, coursework will be a mix of general electives and courses within your major. Even if you are not sure if the career path is for you, the program’s coursework is designed to be practical and high-impact. It will improve your consulting, analytical, and ethical mindsets, which are valuable no matter where/what your first position might be after graduation.
The Internal Audit program provided me tangible experience within the Internal Audit industry that made me interested in pursuing Internal Audit someday. This program also allowed me to meet a mentor who works within the industry who provided guidance with future career options and described what a typical day looks like in Internal Audit."

The IAPSA serves to create opportunities for our student members to participate in networking events, community service, and social events where they can get to know each other. These events aim to enrich both the experience of our students and their knowledge of the profession outside of the required coursework. There are also opportunities for students to develop leadership skills by serving as an officer or on a committee of the IAPSA.
Our program partners with many prestigious organizations who provide our program faculty and students access to internal audit leaders from their organization. Meet our advisory board here!
