The Next Generation of Internal Audit: Nitzan Auz
Meet Nitzan Auz, a former member of the Israel Defense Forces, now a graduate student at Kennesaw State University – an Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) Program participant. Crediting her parents’ bravery in migrating to the United States when she was an adolescent, Nitzan views their sacrifice as the ultimate stepping stone of her future career plans.
The IIA’s IAEP program was developed to respond to the growing interest in internal audit education at institutions of higher learning. Given the caliber of the educators supporting these programs, we were not surprised by Nitzan’s response when asked why she chose to pursue a career in internal auditing.
I was introduced to internal auditing at the beginning of my master’s degree by the Director of Internal Audit Center at Kennesaw State University (KSU) Dr. Richard Clune, who invited newly admitted students to learn more about the IAEP program and careers in internal auditing. I was very intrigued and decided to pursue this opportunity.
With an anticipated graduation date of July 2015, Nitzan Auz is a rising star in this profession and definitely one to watch. Learn more about Nitzan and her insights in starting her career in internal auditing.
