The IIA’s Academic Relations Program

For decades, The IIA has been committed to Academic Relations by providing dedicated staffing and volunteer support. As the profession evolved, so did the needs of the academic community for “internal audit-ready” graduates to enter the business arena and meet the demand for graduates with a reduced learning curve.

To help fill the pipeline with such graduates, The Internal Audit Academic Awareness Program and the Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) were created to support institutions of higher education in creating stellar learning opportunities for those interested in a career in internal auditing. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​
