Program Description:

Aims of the course The MSc in Computer Systems Auditing course comprises six core modules and a dissertation, and aims to give an in-depth knowledge of systems auditing and related subjects from a theoretical and practical perspective. The course emphasises the risk exposures in an IT environment and focuses on the internal controls to minimise these risks. The MSc can also act as a platform for a professional qualification in systems auditing, and past students have gone on to take the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) professional qualification), and/or the Institute of Internal Auditors-UK, Qualification in Computer Auditing (QiCA) examinations. Note however that the IIA is now phasing out and replacing this qualification, although students who registered with IIA before April 2007 are still eligible to take papers in Business Information Systems Auditing (from which the MSc provides exemption) and Specialist Information Systems Auditing, which allied to relevant work experience, lead to the professional qualification. For further details and updates, students need to consult the professional body websites, and liaise directly with the professional body. The course is suitable for: those who are currently employed in auditing or accounting who are seeking specialist knowledge in order to advance their careers recent graduates or qualified accountants who are seeking specialist knowledge in the areas of computer auditing and systems accounting such as relational database design - using Oracle, specialist information systems auditing, and software development those wishing to pursue further research for a PhD in the areas of computer auditing and systems accounting
