Once admitted into the program, students who successfully complete the BBA degree (if not previously earned), attend one local Institute of Internal Auditors’ chapter meeting, and earn at least a GPA of 2.8 in the courses listed below, each with a grade of “C” or better, will be awarded the Internal Auditing Certificate by the Department of Accounting.
