Auditing Minor

Companies are increasing the quality and efficiency of their audits and consulting engagements by employing technology. This has led to an increased need for a combination of auditing and technology skills for students interested in employment opportunities with corporations and consulting firms. By working jointly with the Fisher School of Accounting, the Department of Information Systems and Operations Management has obtained approval for a minor in Auditing which is only available to MS-ISOM students. To obtain this minor, an MS-ISOM student is required to supplement the MS-ISOM course work with the following course work focused on Auditing.

Students interested in the Auditing Minor should complete the application.
