Make the difference and gain your EMITA master’s degree
The duties of an IT auditor go beyond the performance of audits. Technology’s rapid evolution requires IT auditors to have a solid grasp of the reasons behind audit requests. Therefore, in addition to the gaining of knowledge, the program also focuses on promoting a critical, investigative attitude. The assessment, reporting and substantiation of audit findings play important roles. A key element of this program is its focus on using the knowledge and skills gained through case studies in your own work. A wide range of stakeholders and ethical dilemmas are addressed as well.
