Why This Course?

Undeniably, it is becoming increasingly difficult for Internal Auditors in the workplace to stay abreast of the rapidly changing environment of Internal Audit as well as organisational demands, both in the public and private sectors. Besides the increasing level of efficiency expected, the Internal Audit is also expected to focus on a myriad of Strategic, Governance, Compliance and Risk issues (both current and emerging) confronting the organization’s businesses which are ever growing in term of volume, complexity and geographical reach.


In order to cope with demand of the businesses and expectations of its stakeholders, the Internal Audit would have no other choice but to revisit and re-engineer its existing approach and processes starting from Audit Planning so as not to be caught in the famous saying: “Failing to plan is planning to fail”.
