In this post, I will brief you about some of the International certifications which an Internal Audit professional can do to accelerate his/her career in the field of Audit. this may also help those who don’t have Professional degree such as CA, CS, CMA but are keen to make career in Internal Audit.
CIA – Certified Internal Auditor : This is a globally recognised Certification for Internal Audit professionals. Talking about Indian prospective, If you are working for an Indian Company, or looking to join Indian Company and you already had CA Degree, then this certification might not value add as much . But I have seen many MNCs having operations in India specifically asking for CIA certification.
CISA- This is also an International Certification. If you are looking accelerate your career in IT Audits area or you want to become Internal Audit head in future than you must have knowledge of IT audits. By far this is the best certification in the field of IT audits.
CFE -Certified Fraud Examiner : This certification is for those who are interested in taking their career in forensic audits. In some organisations both internal audit and fraud investigation is under one department. So it might help you in taking care of both of them.
