As one of only eight Centres of Internal Audit Excellence globally, as recognised by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) program, the University of Pretoria has a track record of producing first-rate graduates. Two MPhil Internal Auditing graduates from UP recently proved their mettle when they were recognised at the prestigious 2018 Institute of Internal Auditors South Africa (IIA SA) Awards.
The IIA SA is part of an international network representing the interests of internal auditors globally and annually hosts the awards with the aim to recognise and reward excellence and professionalism in internal audit; attract and retain high calibre members to the profession; and motivate members towards continual improvement.
Among various other stringent criteria for each of the award categories, recipients are selected based on their demonstrated commitment to the IIA SA values of integrity, respect, collaboration, courage and collective accountability. Ingrid Ravenscroft won the top prize in the Excellence in Internal Audit Leadership Award category, recognising her for ensuring that the internal audit activity operates at optimal level, at the leading edge, and that the organisation receives a return on its investment in the activity.
