IIA Hosts Student Retreat and Educator’s Forum
The IIA’s Academic Relations team recently hosted its annual Internal Audit Education Partnership (IAEP) Program Networking Retreat and Educator Forum in Orlando, Fla. More than 70 students from across the globe exchanged ideas and experiences with internal audit educators and corporate partners. Students participated in a case study competition and were able to get acquainted and interview with potential employers.

The networking opportunities were not limited to students. The Educator Forum provided an opportunity for educators to learn best practices for incorporating internal auditing education in the classroom. Educators learned from their peers and IAEP program coordinators and left the forum with innovative teaching tips, student chapter information, IAEP program information, and a new network of other like-minded internal audit instructors.
Funding for this event is made possible by corporate partners. Audit professionals from these companies were on hand to share their experiences and guide students in developing their presentations for the case competition. Participating partners were also provided with opportunities to recruit and mentor students preparing from graduation.
