“Internal auditors serve as independent, objective consultants and help improve an organization’s operations by evaluating and improving the effectiveness of internal controls, risk management, and governance processes. The Internal Audit Risk Track at the University of Houston equips students with a diverse set of skills in Internal Audit. The Audit Risk Courses at UH are designed and taught by experienced professors and seasoned Audit Directors that want to transfer their wealth of knowledge to upcoming generations of Audit Professionals.”
