Minor in Business Risk Assurance

Technology disruptors, globalization, and a changing regulatory environment have driven the need for businesses to increase their risk management activities. This results in an increased need for business professionals with an understanding of technology, risk, and control and how they interrelate. There is significant demand for an understanding of assurance and consulting techniques among non-accountants who over their careers will serve in various corporate governance roles.

This minor will provide students the opportunity to earn an Internal Audit Education Partnership program completion certificate from The Institute of Internal Auditors, and also the foundational knowledge to begin pursuit of professional certification as a Certified Internal Auditor and/or Certified Information Systems Auditor. It does not provide the necessary coursework to qualify for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant.
