Objectifs

Modules

This audit course looks at both the auditor’s traditional role and how this has evolved in an ever-changing environment. It teaches students about international accounting standards in line with the different existing frameworks, as well as about international auditing standards, compliance and professional ethics, governance, internal control and offers a basic grounding in fraud and cybersecurity concepts. The notions that underpin audit and governance are discussed with practical examples of audit techniques and work programmes used to illustrate how these are applied in real-life situations. The program draws on case studies as well as professional and academic articles for discussion and analysis. This course prepares students to take on roles as external and internal auditors, work on large accounts for the Big 4 accounting firms or as in-house auditors for major listed companies.
