The Institute of Internal Auditors has renewed the University of Waterloo in the Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) program for the 2023-2028 period. The IAEP program was developed to respond to the growing interest in internal audit education at institutions of higher learning and recognizes institutions that demonstrate ongoing leadership in internal audit education. The global Institute of Internal Auditors’ renewal of its affiliation with the University of Waterloo signifies that the curricula developed prepare students with the skills and knowledge to help them conduct internal audits as well as provide a foundation to begin preparing for the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination. Waterloo joins a select group of over 50 other distinguished institutions world-wide participating in the program.

The 3rd annual interactive dashboard competition, co-sponsored by UWCISA and the ISACA Toronto Chapter started with 91 teams (all 452 AFM112 students). 24 teams advanced to the second round.
