BATON ROUGE – Jenee’ Latrice Porter, a business administration major with a specialization in internal audit and a minor in dance, was recently featured as “The Next Generation of Internal Audit” by The Institute of Internal Auditors.

In an interview with the IIA, Porter said that she chose to pursue a career in internal audit because of the variety of the field. She also stated that the countless networking advantages available to IA students have given her numerous resources at her disposal.

“Internal audit will continue to change as the business world continues to change,” Porter said in the release. “I like the possibilities and growth that come with that change.”

Porter’s dream is to be the owner of a boutique, allowing her to integrate her interests of business and fashion. She also has advice for her fellow members of the next generation of internal audit.

“Just give it a try!” Porter said. “Even if you find that you don’t like internal audit, you’ll find something you do enjoy in the interim and gain valuable knowledge that can be used in any profession. It’s never a waste of time.”

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 serves as a model for similar university programs internationally and 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.
