Colleges and universities across the country are increasingly striving to develop their students as successful global citizens. Institutions must manage a wide range of international activities, including study abroad programs, partnerships with foreign schools, internationally funded research activities, and sourcing from foreign vendors. Each of these activities can present unique challenges and risks to the school. In this global environment, internal auditors need to be aware of the scope of their institution’s international operations and to work with management to support the evaluation and management of international risks and related processes and controls.
