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.

Composition of part-time Executive Master of IT Auditing (EMITA)

The master’s program offers a highly varied curriculum. Lectures are heavily case-oriented. They are taught from the perspective of management and focus primarily on how to set up operational control processes. Our lecturers are authorities in their fields, have extensive practical experience and are highly involved in the program. The personalized guidance at TIAS and the part-time format make sure that you can combine your studies with work and other duties. The master’s program consists of these modules:

  • Business Process Control 
  • IT Auditing Fundamentals
  • Trust & Controls Technology
  • Business Research Methods
  • Management of IT
  • One of the following specializations:
    - Cybersecurity
    - Data & Analytics

The program is concluded by a master’s thesis project that centers on your performance of an IT auditing assignment as a group.
