Career Opportunities

The purpose of this qualification is to provide the student with the skills, competence, knowledge and understanding to become a professional internal auditor. This will enable them to perform services ranging from the more traditional assurance services (financial- and compliance audits) to value-adding business advisory and assurance services (operational- and strategic audits). 

Given the strong focus on skills in the programme, students will have to convert embedded knowledge practically into different applicable audit software programs. This enables students to develop work relevant competence, as an aid to employment and career progression. The qualification also allows students access to the Internal Audit Technician (IAT) and Professional Internal Auditor (PIA) programs, giving access to lifelong professional development and support, through the opportunity to take up full membership with the IIA (SA), as the foremost institute for internal auditors in South Africa. 

The qualification benefits employers as they can have confidence in the ability of trained staff and can recruit or promote internal auditors, knowing that they have proved able to perform the work required. The qualification will also be aligned with the IIA Global’s professional designation, as a professional qualification is a necessity in the internal audit profession.
