HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 28, 2010 – The Earl N. Phillips School of Business at High Point University recently hosted the Local Triad Chapter of The Institute of Internal Auditors? Student Night.
“Students had the opportunity to network with leading accounting and auditing representatives from the Triad and learned about audit career opportunities for accounting and business majors, including public accounting and internal auditing in private industry,” says George Noxon, chair of the Department of Accounting, Finance & Economics in the Phillips School of Business.
Prior to the meeting, students had an opportunity to take part in a Mock Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) Exam Competition.
