Recognition of the Athens University of Economics and Business into The IIA Internal Audit Awareness Program
The M.Sc. program in Accounting and Finance of the Athens University of Economics and Business has been recently recognized by The Institute of Internal Auditors (The IIA) as one of The IIA Internal Audit Awareness Program Schools. Established in 1941 and headquartered in Florida (USA), The IIA is the leading international professional association for internal auditors with more than 180.000 members. The Internal Audit Academic Awareness Program was created to recognize the commitment and effort of universities that provide students with the information and skill sets necessary to choose an internal auditing career path. Some of the benefits for the participating universities in the program include the following:
- Employers consult The IIA’s list of schools teaching internal auditing as they consider the degree of internal audit education they seek for their new hires.
- Guest speakers may be provided upon request.
- Universities participating in the program have access to various materials for use in the classroom.
- There are enhanced opportunities to network with other educators teaching internal auditing to share ideas and materials.
