BATON ROUGE – Robert Truelson, a recent graduate of the E. J. Ourso College of Business, has been singled out as “The Next Generation of Internal Audit” by The Institute of Internal Auditors.

In an IIA press release, Truelson said that internal auditing departments provide valuable experience because of the exposure that students receive to all aspects of business.

“Whether you’re working in industry or in public accounting, you’re in a position where you can add value,” Truelson said in the release. “It’s an exciting and rewarding career path. You can feel proud that you’ve made an impact on your organization.”

Truelson earned his master’s of accounting with a specialization in internal audit from LSU in 2014 and said he wants to complete his CPA exams before starting work full-time. He added that his dream job would be a university professor, since there are many opportunities in the fields of accounting and internal auditing.

LSU recently celebrated 30 years of internal audit education. In 1985, the IIA endorsed the university as the pilot school for an educational program in internal auditing; since then, it has become a model for similar programs around the world.

The Center for Internal Auditing at LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business is a multidisciplinary program with students from many different business and non-business majors and is considered the premier internal audit program in the world. LSUCIA provides training to graduate and undergraduate students to develop an understanding of the internal auditing profession, which encompasses governance, risk, enterprise risk management, controls, and technology.
