Case Studies Overview

The LSU CIA Case Studies course covers 100 internal audit topics in a team presentation format. Each team makes about 10 presentations during the week with significant critique from all attendees (students, faculty, and practitioners).

Objectives of this course are five-fold:

  • Prepare students for internship
  • Exposure to 100 relevant internal audit topics
  • Improve presentation skills
  • Cover topics that are on the Certified Internal Auditor exam
  • Networking

The course is designed to address the five top attributes that recruiters look for in entry-level internal auditors:

  • Communication skills
  • Teamwork
  • Creativity
  • Integrity
  • Analysis

Typically, the instruction team includes the LSU CIA staff. Instruction is also provided by alumni, practitioners, and former faculty.

This course also includes preparation of a research paper on several timely internal audit topics.
