Internal Audit Masterclass (Chennai)

Internal Audit today is just no more a function of cross check overs of the accounts of a company. Today internal audit as a function has evolved into an indispensable control tool in the hands of the management to effectively and efficiently run the show. It has come up a long way in becoming a strategic business partner to the organization in evaluating the adequacy of internal controls and assessing the extent of compliance with applicable laws and regulations, policies and procedures and suggesting ways to reduce the costs and enhance profitability.
