Overview

Students in the Information Systems Auditing and Control program at the Bowling Green State University learn the knowledge and skills required to evaluate the control and audit requirements of complex computer-based information systems. 

Graduates analyze an organization’s informational system and determine the controls and audit processes required to assure that the information is reliable and secure.

Career Opportunities

  • The information systems auditing and control (ISAC) specialization provides graduates with the knowledge and skills to assess the internal control environment of complex computer-based systems and perform sophisticated auditing techniques of those systems. 
  • As the breadth of information technology and an organization’s reliance on that technology continues to grow, the importance of protecting information and technology resources from internal and external threats grows at an even more rapid pace. 
  • This growth provides a high demand for qualified individuals with a background in ISAC. While certification as a Certified Information Systems Auditor requires work experience, graduates from this program are expected to do well on the certifying exam.
