Internal auditing program receives grant

The Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) at Pittsburg State University recently received support from an international organization.

The Internal Auditing Academic Advancement Fund, part of the international Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), recently approved a request from Pitt State for a $2,000 grant to support the university’s IAEP program.

Pittsburg State is one of only 46 universities in the world that feature an IAEP program, which prepares students with the skills and knowledge to help them conduct basic internal audits immediately upon hire, as well as provide a foundation to begin preparing for the Certified Internal Auditor examination.

Schools with an IAEP program teach an internal auditing curriculum within a degree program endorsed by the IIA.

“Students who earn an IAEP certification graduate with a tremendous advantage as they enter the workforce,” said Becky Casey, IAEP faculty co-coordinator at Pitt State. “It’s an incredible asset for the students and the university to be able to offer this within the Kelce College of Business.”

The grant will help support the purchase and implementation of IIA curriculum and professional development at Pitt State.

Established in 2006 to promote the IIA’s educational strategies, the Internal Auditing Academic Advancement Fund mission is "to carry out the educational and charitable purposes for internal audit education” of the IIA.

Casey, a member of the PSU faculty since 2002, recently earned her Certified Internal Auditor certification.

“That was always a personal goal of mine to earn the CIA certification,” said Casey, who earned her MBA from Pittsburg State.
