Internship Program: Student Experiences
I am overwhelmed with how amazing it is to be in D.C., not only because this is the place where things are happening, but especially in such an interesting time for our economy. I quickly realized, within the first few days of my internship, how many doors the LSU CIA program has opened for me.

My internship at Grant Thornton in Houston provided me with the opportunity to experience corporate life in a big city while applying concepts taught by LSU CIA to real-world situations. Through working on an actual audit, I was able to demonstrate and improve my knowledge, skills and abilities. I enjoyed working on an audit team and look forward to my future career in internal auditing.

Working for Grant Thornton in Guadalajara, Mexico was an incredible experience. The fact that I got to experience a new culture and got to see a different perspective of internal audit makes me a very lucky person. I got to work with some amazing people and I learned a whole lot. Thank you LSU CIA program could have not done it without the program’s help.

My internship in Mexico City with Salles Sainz Grant Thornton is one of the best experiences of my life. The international experience is something I would recommend to any individual who is serious about becoming a well-rounded internal auditor. The LSU CIA program not only focuses on developing new skills, but it also allows you to strengthen your own unique skills. LSU CIA opens doors to those who are confident, hard-working, and open to invaluable experiences within the internal audit profession.

The LSU CIA provides the resources necessary to excel in today's business world. The program instills the professionalism, respect, and behavior required to become employable. Internal audit views a company through a holistic lens, which is an unparalleled opportunity for any college graduate because most entry level positions are highly technical and specific. I quickly realized within a few weeks of working the powerful advantage the LSU CIA gives its students.

The LSU CIA program placed me ahead of the curve. Many of the topics studied while in the program became relevant during the first few days of working on audit teams. In addition, the program provided me with unparalleled networking opportunities. Some of my team members were LSU CIA graduates. This similarity allowed my new teammates and I to quickly bond. This program has made a name for itself and words cannot describe the value.

The internship this past summer in Atlanta, GA at Crowe Horwath, LLP facilitated me with developing skills learned outside of the classroom. It exposed me to real world experience, helping me grow as a professional. The coursework learned throughout the LSU CIA program was reinforced by the work assigned to me in my internship. Additionally, I was placed on a variety of clients in a wide variety of industries.
