Course description

Operational Auditing: Part 1- OAG220WEB

This is a two-part series, and each session is independent of the other. You may register for one or both. Part 1 covers the fundamentals of operational auditing, including the assessment of the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of operations, verifying the safeguarding and proper usage of company assets and the balancing of stakeholder demands including ethics, equity and ecological concerns. Internal auditors must determine if processes are efficient and supportive of organizational objectives, which requires business skills and the use of tools and techniques that often differ from those employed when performing traditional financial reviews.
